The purpose of this research was to understand sentiment on social media as it relates to the anti-vaccination movement. Using a corpora of Twitter, Facebook and Reddit the sentiment found on each of these platforms was measured using a frequency dictionary of lexicons with categories pertinent to the research and statistical tests. The results yielded key differences in how anti-vaxx sentiment is talked about on each platform.
