Black People Politics : Facebook to pay users to quit the app as part of election study


Jul 2, 2003
Q: How many people will participate in the study?

We expect between 200,000 and 400,000 US adults may choose to participate in the study, which could include things like taking part in surveys or agreeing to see a different product experience. We will also study trends across Facebook and Instagram – but only in aggregate.


What Do You Believe is the Real Reason?
Any real Viable reason FaceBook is doing this other than wondering if FaceBook makes or have an Impact on the Election?

I haven't sen any political ads on my page. None I had to delete recently..

FaceBook Can't Be Trusted
Everyone should quit the App without getting paid.


Facebook will pay tens of thousands of users to quit the app ahead of the election so it can study the platform's impact on politics

As part of the study, it will pay Facebook and Instagram users — possibly between $10 and $20 per week — to stop using the app,

The company expects between 200,000 and 400,000 users to participate in the study, which will run through December but likely won't produce results until mid-2021.

On Monday, Facebook announced its plans for the study, a partnership with 17 outside academic researchers that hopes to "better understand the impact of Facebook and Instagram on key political attitudes and behaviors."

"It will examine the impact of how people interact with our products, including content shared in News Feed and across Instagram, and the role of features like content ranking systems," the company said. The study will involve asking some Facebook and Instagram users to deactivate their accounts or agree to "targeted changes" to their experiences ahead of the November elections and running through December.

Dwoskin collected screenshots of notifications sent to some Instagram users this week asking them how much they'd have to be compensated to deactivate their accounts, giving them options of $10, $15, or $20 per week. Facebook expects between 200,000 and 400,000 people to eventually participate.
