Abstract [en]

A community in social networks is generally assumed to be composed of a group of individuals with similar characteristics. Although there has been a plethora of work on understanding network topologies (edge density, clustering coefficient, etc.) within an online community, the psycho-sociological compositions of social network communities have hardly been studied. The present paper aims to analyse the communities as composition of induced psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic variables (Personalities, Values and Ethics) across individuals in social media networks. The motivation behind this analysis is to understand the behavioural characteristics at individual as well as societal level in social networks. To this end, three studies were carried out on six different datasets: three Twitter corpora, two Facebook corpora, and an Essay corpus, annotated with Values and Ethics of the users. First, experiments on creating automatic models to determine the Personality and Values of individuals by analysing their language usage and social media behaviour. Second, experiments on understanding the characteristics or blend of characteristics of individuals within an online community. Finally, generation of a map of values and ethics for India, a multi-lingual and multi-cultural country. Striking similarities to general intuitive perception could be observed, i.e., the results obtained in the study resemble our general perception about the cities/towns of India.
