As for why Facebook wants this data, the company says it'll use the info to improve its products. It will launch only in the USA and India initially, and you have to be targeted by Facebook to take part. In some cases, the app reportedly targeted users as young as 13-years old.
The company previously rolled out two similar apps but both were shut down after drawing criticism for infringing on privacy, and one was cited for violating Apple'sApp Store terms of agreement, according to The Associated Press. The social media giant has been frowned upon (to put it lightly) for the way it handles user data. Facebook will run ads about Study on its platform and elsewhere.
The app is only available in the U.S. and India now, but we'd be very surprised if the company doesn't release it everyone else - personal data is personal data after all, and Facebook is hungry for as much as it can get. Also, the Study app is only coming to Android for now and can be downloaded by anyone from the Play Store but only users approved by Applause can log in and use it. The company plans to try to make it available more broadly in the future. The company also said it will not sell any information it collects via the app to third parties or use it to target ads.
Facebook did not respond to a request for additional comment on Study.
The new "Study from Facebook" app gives Facebook users the chance to volunteer to share information about their app usage - and get paid for divulging this information. Participants will be paid an undisclosed monthly amount. This is all accessible before participants provide any market research information to the app.
Facebook said Study would not collect user IDs, passwords, or content, including photos, videos, or messages.
Participants must be 18 years old, and now it is only available to people in the US and India. A Facebook account isn't required.
The Mark Zuckerberg platform promises to not snoop through any personal files and whatever data is collected, will be kept safe and away from any third parties. You can register by clicking on the ad and if you are qualified, you will be invited to join the app.
