Algorithmic identification of mental health characteristics is feasible on the basis of easily available information on social media. Such information can be extracted by algorithmic methods from publicly available information. These possibilities raise significant ethical and legal concerns, especially with regard to issues of privacy, consent, transparency and harm and the protections of the DPD and GDPR.
