Facebook's Psychological Study Outrages Users, UK Regulators To Probe

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. Dr. Suzy Moat, Assistant Professor at the University of Warwick Business School joins Julia Sun to discuss the experiment. Video provided by TheStreet

Facebook May Be Banned in China, But Ad Sales Are Alive

TheStreet (May 13, 2014) — Facebook may be banned in China, but that hasn't slowed the social media giant from quietly building its advertising business there. Bloomberg reports that Facebook is looking to lease office space in China, presumably to open an office there. However, the company has already been working with exports on advertising. Facebook has essentially become more of an advertising company than a social media company since the social network went public, and companies have learned that a Facebook page is no good without spending some ad dollars since Facebook cut back on organic reach.
