How are negative reactions calculated?

The ‘Reactions’ tab shows the percentage of people who reacted negatively to an article compared to the total number of people who reacted to it. For example, if 150 people reacted to an article and 22 of those were negative reactions, the ‘Reactions’ tab will show 15%.
