BuzzFeed News: Facebook Said It Would Give Detailed Data To Academics. They’re Still Waiting.. “In 2018, Facebook announced a partnership to provide data to academics to ‘help people better understand the broader impact of social media on democracy — as well as improve our work to protect the integrity of elections.’… But as of today, many of the academic teams remain on hold because Facebook has yet to provide key data required to conduct research into sharing patterns of fake and polarized news, Facebook interactions related to the 2018 Italian election, and disinformation campaigns in the recent German election, among other projects. Facebook has also declined to provide some of the data it originally said it would offer, citing privacy concerns.
