How Do They Feel: Categorial Sentiment Analysis of Emojis For Social Media Communication

In electronic communication, consumers increasingly use emoticons to express their emotions. We develop a categorial emoji sentiment analysis tool on the basis of a qualitative study with 900 participants and validate it with a second, quantitative study. The tool simplifies the identification of emotional consumer reactions in social media communication.
