Title: What do digital footprints reveal about people (and why we should care)?
To what extent does our online activity reveal who we are? Recent research has demonstrated that the digital traces left by individuals as they browse and interact with others online may reveal who they are and what their interests may be. In this presentation, I will first share the results of three reviews and meta-analyses of the evidence that digital footprints can be used to predict individual characteristics. Using language matching as a case study, I will then demonstrate how subtle changes can predict social roles and personality. Finally, I will discuss evidence that this knowledge can be used to influence decision making, and implications for digital security, trust, and privacy.
