Facebook manipulation of its users emotions in feeds.

Managing Real Estate Broker with ERA American Real Estate





This was covered by all the major news outlets the story died without anything stated in place as far as rulings or laws to ban Facebook from doing this again but they were protected under a private company setting and now being  a  public traded company can we expect this not to happen again?  http://www.pnas.org/content/111/24/8788.full.pdf


 "Lack of 'informed consent' means that Facebook experiment on nearly 700,000 news feeds broke rules on tests on human subjects, say scientists"


PNAS Obtaining informed consent and allowing participants to opt out are best practices in most instances under the US Department of Health and Human Services Policy for the Protection of Human

Research Subjects.




I was looking to see what had been done years later now and dont see anything that has been done. 

It was stated that users agree when setting up an account with Facebook that their timeline and newfeed may be manipulated, I believe most users expected this to be used for advertisements being placed and or removal of post that violated terms of service for porn postings etc.

Facebook and most social media are still pretty unregulated platforms. The disclosures and agreement that the users agree to when signing on are lenghty and very hard to understand for most people...

It is certainly possible. Social media sites do a lot of things we know nothing about...until we do.
