News & Moods adopts the popular 5-star system in representing sentiment scores. 2.5 stars means neutral. If the stars are less than 2.5 (range 0.1 – 2.4), they indicate negative sentiment. The lower the negative score, the more negative it becomes. If the stars are greater than 2.5 (range 2.6 – 5.0), it is positive sentiment. The higher the positive score, the more positive it shows.
