This overview presents the framework and the results for the Author Profiling task at PAN 2014. Objective of this year is the analysis of the adaptability of the detection approaches when given different genres. For this purpose four different corpora have been compiled: social media, Twitter, blogs, and hotel reviews. The construction of the Twitter corpora happened in cooperation with RepLab in order to investigate also a reputational perspective. Altogether, the approaches of 10 participants are evaluated.
