Abstract

In this paper we use a corpus-based approach on blog posts to investigate the relationship between moral values and human well-being in social media. In the process, we look at whether there is a significant gender and age effect with regards to interest in morality and value priority. We find some support for a direct relationship between morality and well-being and a gender/age effect on the extent to which people are interested in moral questions, but no real effect on value priority.
