Abstract

We propose an approach employing Support Vector Machine (SVM) to estimate bloggers' gender from blog posts. The data we analyze consists of blog posts on Doblog (Japanese blog-hosting service) and questionnaire results by Doblog users. Experimental evaluations show that our approach achieved 90% accuracy for 83% bloggers.
