Abstract: Lots of effort has been conducted to analyze information of social networks, such as sentiment trend analysis of social network users. Our aim is to analyze the sentimental influence of posts and compare the result on various topics and different social media platforms. Large amounts of posts are generated on social networks every day. People are curious in finding the influence among them. Most researchers measured the influence of a post through the number of replies it received. However, we are not sure if the influence is made positively or negatively on other posts if their sentimental information is not considered. In this paper, three research questions are raised and methodologies are proposed for the measure of sentimental influence of posts. Finally, a preliminary experiment is designed and carried out with some interesting results found.
