TheStreet (July 2, 2014) — Facebook reportedly manipulated the timeline feeds of nearly 700,000 users in 2012 to study how different emotional expressions change users' behavior. Facebook and its research partners concluded that if a user sees a lot of negative feeds, this user is more likely to post a negative status update. The psychological experiment was carried out without users' consent. UK data regulators are investigating whether Facebook violated data protection laws.
