Technology has been increasingly becoming a bigger part of the world in which live. Broadly, this has both potential benefits and pitfalls for our ability to lead meaningful and vital lives. As behavioral scientists interested in prediction and influence of human behavior, we have new tools for accessing and analyzing data and the greater potential to reach individuals and shape behavior. One area that may be particularly fruitful is the analysis of language. A number of tools have been developed for gathering and analyzing this data that may be of use to those interested in behavioral science. Along with this, we have to be mindful of practical and ethical issues, which may arise in this arena.
