How happiness was measured
The survey was conducted in August 2021 by sorting thousands of geotagged Instagram posts around the world. We then looked at the faces of these posts to compare the well-being of the average Instagram user to those who recently bought a home. When asked if the owner of the Instagram post had consented, a company representative said: “We didn’t get permission, but the data was completely anonymous, and the only identifiable data point was the photo geotag, not the person, or the photo itself.”
Two sets of photos were collected for investigation. Photos posted with the hashtag #selfie and photos posted with a hashtag like #newhomeowner. The team behind the survey used Microsoft Azure’s facial recognition tools to scan both photo sets. The tool analyzed each photo and provided a score for each emotion displayed on the face based on prevalence. The emotion with the highest score indicates the most dominant emotion that exists. Cities were included in the list only if at least 100 AI-detectable photos were geotagged.
From the analysis, the team concluded that people who recently bought a new home are much happier than the average Instagram user who posted a selfie. Happiness was the predominant emotion in just over one-third (35%) of the #selfies posts analyzed. However, when comparing this number with the happiness detected in the faces of recent homebuyers, it rose to 83 percent.
