It seems that all the people who consumes a good part of time on the Internet, can now be detected by a software program which is able to analyze the negative emotional states based on their written texts.

The program is able to recognize if those authors suffer from depression and how serious is this.

Therefore, when the program made such an detection, it scanned no less than 300,000 blogs around the world (only in English), then made the top 100 of the most depressed bloggers. The software made even a top 100 of the most optimistic bloggers.

The results were closely studied by psychologists which revealed that 78% of the cases were correctly analyze.

We must underline the fact that the software made a complex analysis which refers to negative words such as “depression”, “sadness”, “suicide”, “death”.

The application developed by the Ben-Gurion University researchers from Israel is therefore a useful tool in order to detect people with suicidal tendencies. 

Besides, it has the advantage to be used for masses, thing that a psychologist can’t do.
