YellowDragon Posted October 1, 2022 Share Posted October 1, 2022 I am going to guess most if not all members here heard about this. Where Facebook was running experiments on people without them knowing. Using their algorithm to push certain content into people's feeds to see how they would feel and act. Some were given non-stop sad/depressing/enraging news and stories while the others were given happy/uplifting/empowering news and stories. I believe they used targeted feeds dealing with social issues like sexism and racism as well. No one had a clue it was happening either. This should be considered illegal but as of now, they seem to have gotten away with it. Do you think this is something everyone should be more aware of moving forward and laws should be put in place to "free the code" so to speak on social platform giants like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Reddit, etc. so we know we are not being manipulated - and if we are, we can opt in or out of their tests?
