Unscramble the Blue Letters

So what have we learned to date? Gender. Our data confirms something that you might ssuepct. Women are more eixvpresse than men. Not only do they slime more, their smiles last longer, and we can now really quantify what it is that men and wemon respond to differently. Let's do culture: So in the United States, women are 40 percent more expressive than men, but curiously, we don't see any difference in the U.K. between men and women. (Laughter) Age: People who are 50 years and older are 25 percent more emotive than younger people. Women in their 20s smile a lot more than men the same age, perhaps a nisctseey for dating. But perhaps what surprised us the most about this data is that we hapepn to be expressive all the time, even when we are sitting in front of our dveices alone, and it's not just when we're watching cat videos on Facebook. We are expressive when we're emailing, ttiexng, shopping oninle, or even doing our taxes.

So what have we learned to date? Gender. Our data confirms something that you might suspect. Women are more expressive than men. Not only do they smile more, their smiles last longer, and we can now really quantify what it is that men and women respond to differently. Let's do culture: So in the United States, women are 40 percent more expressive than men, but curiously, we don't see any difference in the U.K. between men and women. (Laughter) Age: People who are 50 years and older are 25 percent more emotive than younger people. Women in their 20s smile a lot more than men the same age, perhaps a necessity for dating. But perhaps what surprised us the most about this data is that we happen to be expressive all the time, even when we are sitting in front of our devices alone, and it's not just when we're watching cat videos on Facebook. We are expressive when we're emailing, texting, shopping online, or even doing our taxes.
