Reuters: Facebook partners with external researchers to study its impact during U.S. election

Reuters: Facebook partners with external researchers to study its impact during U.S. election. “A group of 17 independent researchers from the fields of elections, democracy and social media will now work with internal Facebook data scientists to design the studies. The company expects between 200,000 and 400,000 users to opt into the project, which will log what they see and how they behave on Facebook and Instagram. It will introduce targeted changes to some participants’ experiences, such as advertising or types of posts shown to them.”
