“We feel fine”

Posted in sites, sociedade at 8:59 am by Ana

Acabei de encontrar (através do Marketallica) o site de um projecto incrível!🙂 Chama-se "we feel fine" e explora as emoções das pessoas expressas pela web. No site, em "Mission", pode ler-se:

«We Feel Fine is an exploration of human emotion on a global scale.

Since August 2005, We Feel Fine has been harvesting human feelings from a large number of weblogs. Every few minutes, the system searches the world's newly posted blog entries for occurrences of the phrases "I feel" and "I am feeling". When it finds such a phrase, it records the full sentence, up to the period, and identifies the "feeling" expressed in that sentence (e.g. sad, happy, depressed, etc.). Because blogs are structured in largely standard ways, the age, gender, and geographical location of the author can often be extracted and saved along with the sentence, as can the local weather conditions at the time the sentence was written. All of this information is saved.(…)»

Vale a pena explorar um pouco o site, e o applet em si.🙂 É muito engraçado. Por exemplo, em "Findings":

Gender

182,847
FEELINGS
from 154,524
UNIQUE WOMEN
266,978
FEELINGS
from 95,986
UNIQUE MEN

Significa que ou há mais mulheres na net, nomeadamente em blogs, ou há mais mulheres do que homens a falar do que sentem nesses mesmos blogs.

Age

 
46,821
FEELINGS
from 22,356
PEOPLE AGED 0 – 9
560,927
FEELINGS
from 152,351
PEOPLE AGED 10 – 19
977,837
FEELINGS
from 222,251
PEOPLE AGED 20 – 29
131,538
FEELINGS
from 26,627
PEOPLE AGED 30 – 39
25,415
FEELINGS
from 5,316
PEOPLE AGED 40 – 49

A presença na web por idades, particularmente em blogs, revela que muito à frente está a faixa dos 20 aos 29 anos, com a dos 10 aos 19 a seguir.
