User Modeling from Social Media

Workshop paper submission deadline: 20 January 2012

...An emerging area of research is to use social media data for
creating models of individual users from the content they publish.
User modeling techniques have been applied to infer users’ home
location, gender, age, regional origin, ethnicity, political
orientation, finding potential experts in a question-answering
community, place-naming preferences, etc. Deeper understanding of user
behavior and associated attributes can benefit a wide range of
intelligent applications, such as social recommender systems and
expert finders, as well as provide the foundation in support of novel
user interfaces (e.g., actively engaging the crowd in mixed-initiative
question-answering systems). These applications and interfaces may
offer significant benefits to users across a wide variety of domains,
such as retail, government, healthcare and education...
