> BACKGROUND
> *******************************************************
>
> Research in automatic Subjectivity and Sentiment Analysis (SSA), as
> subtasks of Affective Computing and Natural Language Processing (NLP),
> has flourished in the past years. The growth in interest in these tasks
> was motivated by the birth and rapid expansion of the Social Web that
> made it possible for people all over the world to share, comment or
> consult content on any given topic. In this context, opinions,
> sentiments and emotions expressed in Social Media texts have been shown
> to have a high influence on the social and economic behaviour worldwide.
> SSA systems are highly relevant to many real-world applications (e.g.
> marketing, eGovernance, business intelligent, social analysis) and also
> to many tasks in Natural Language Processing (NLP) -- information
> extraction, question answering, textual entailment, to name just a few.
> The importance of this field has been proven by the high number of
> approaches proposed in research in the past decade, as well as by the
> interest that it raised from other disciplines (Economics, Sociology,
> Psychology) and the applications that were created using its technology.
> In spite of the growing body of research in the area in the past years,
> dealing with affective phenomena in text has proven to be a complex,
> interdisciplinary problem that remains far from being solved. Its
> challenges include the need to address the issue from different
> perspectives and at different levels, depending on the characteristics
> of the textual genre, the language(s) treated and the final application
> for which the analysis is done.
