Five hundred questionnaires were collected and analysed to verify the level of ???like??? and ???dislike??? value. Our results show significant values on each of the hypotheses.

N2 - We hypothesise that it is possible to determine a fine-grained set of sentiment values over and above the simple three-way positive/neutral/negative or binary Like/Dislike distinctions by examining textual formatting features. We show that this is possible for online comments about ten different categories of products. In the context of online shopping and reviews, one of the ways to analyse consumers' feedback is by analysing comments. The rating of the ???like??? button on a product or a comment is not sufficient to understand the level of expression.
