The web provides a suitable media for users to post comments on different topics. In most of such content, authors express different opinions on different features or aspects of the topic. In aspect based sentiment analysis, it is analyzed as to for which aspect which opinion is expressed. Once aspects are available, the next important step is to match aspects with correct sentiments. In this work, we investigate enhancements for two cases in matching step: extracting implicit aspects, and sentiment words whose polarity depends on the aspect. The techniques are applied on Turkish informal texts collected from a products forum. Experimental evaluation shows that additional steps applied for these cases improve the accuracy of aspect based sentiment analysis.

However, the potential of such social features associated with shared content still remains unexplored in the context of information retrieval. In this paper, we first study the social features that are associated with the top-ranked videos retrieved from the YouTube video sharing site for the real user queries. Our analysis considers both r...
