There is serious funding taking place to model demographics and trends of opinion/mental states using the internet. This takes place by mining the internet for the number of link hits taking place for websites/website categories and creating word-clouds (commonly organized by either frequency of use or relationships,) as a graphic supplement for this information. This information is then, most often, codified and condensed into a graph.

It turns out that very specific patterns of internet use are reliably related to depressive tendencies. For example, peer-to-peer file sharing, heavy emailing and chatting online, and a tendency to quickly switch between multiple websites and other online resources all predict a greater propensity to experience symptoms of depression.


Very soon they will know more about us than we do simply from analyzing our computer use.

TY! Which is why, seeing as they rely on computer use, you should create alternate personas to use! Kinda like cross-dressing. Only it's imaginary.
