The field of opinion mining provides a multitude of methods and techniques to be utilized to find, extract and analyze subjective information, such as the one found on social media channels. Because of the differences be-tween these channels as well as their unique characteristics, not all approaches are suitable for each source; there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach. This paper aims at identifying and determining these differences and characteristics by per-forming an empirical analysis as a basis for a discussion which opinion mining approach seems to be applicable to which social media channel.
