Title: Word use, personality, and subjective well-being.
The words people use on social media such as Twitter, Facebook and
Google are a rich, if imperfect, source of information about their
personality and psychological state. This talk will give an
introduction to recent work in estimating variation in subjective
well-being over time and space from social media word use. I will also
describe our work characterizing how word use in Facebook posts varies
as a function of age, sex, IQ and personality, and what we can learn
from these word use patterns.
