People have different views on the same subject and thus challenge the traditional sentiment analysis system. Traditional sentiment analysis systems rely on traditional statistical models, which suffer from data scarcity. This paper builds a personalized sentiment analysis system that uses social relationship information to balance personalization and over-provisioning. The method is based on a network lasso that automatically brings together socially nearby users so that users in the same group share the same personalized model. At the same time, a distributed optimization algorithm is designed to make the personalized sentiment analysis system extend to large networks. Experiments on the Yelp review dataset show that our approach is always better than the competition approach.
