A team of scientists at Stony Brook University (New York) using a special algorithm analyzed about 10 million statuses and comments of 65, 000 Facebook users who had previously given their consent.
The survey showed that the female half in communication is much "warmer and more pleasant" than the male. Moreover, it was so obvious that scientists were able to determine the gender of the author of a comment by simply reading it - the accuracy was 90%.
Most often, users of the social network use words and phrases such as “wonderful”, “happy”, “birthday”, “daughter”, “child”, “excitement”, “grateful”.
For men, the lexicon looked more belligerent: "freedom", "victory", "battle", "enemy". Unsurprisingly, they show a higher level of aggression, while not being particularly persistent. And, on the contrary, you cannot refuse "warm and pleasant" women.
According to research participant Margaret Kern, Ph.D. from the University of Melbourne, the participants' behavior is fully consistent with their intelligence and gender stereotypes prevalent among them.
The result of the researchers' work was a service that determines your gender and age solely from the words from Facebook statuses. To use it, you need to log in with the login of the social network. Unfortunately, the dictionary base of the service includes only English.
