Having learnt from its mistakes with Research and Onavo - programs that were paying teenagers to give Facebook data on how they were using their phones - Facebook's new endeavour has an age limit. Well, the company shut that program down after a huge backlash, but the app's sorta making a comeback.
The firm says it'll compensate users for the participation in the app, and limits it to 18 years and older (though it notes ominously that this is at launch.) Facebook's Study app will only be available to people in India and the U.S. t launch, but the firm will expand its availability over time.
Facebook said the app will not be used to serve people ads, and information will not be shared with third-party companies - a line the company has been walking carefully since its Cambridge Analytica scandal previous year that exposed the data of millions of Facebook users to an outside political research firm. It also likely hopes this is transparent enough to avoid getting the company in trouble. Users are free to leave the program, which will require uninstalling the app and notifying Facebook that they cancel their participation.
