Automatic detection of gender on the blogs


In this paper, we are interested in defining the gender of blogger while using only texts written from bloggers. For that purpose, we offer a number of features based on specific words, which were categorized into classes. For each blog, a score is calculated based on these characteristics, thereby determining the gender of its author. The evaluation was made on a corpus of 681,288 Blogs (140 million words) tagged as men or women. In our work, this collection will be taken as a reference. The obtained results show gender detection over 82% compared to the referenced collection.
