Facebook has had a lot of concerns directed their way in terms of privacy, and it shouldn't be a surprise that there is yet another one. This social media giant is under investigation by the Information Commissioners Office in the UK. The cause of this new development is a psychological experiment that influenced the content that showed on peoples feeds.
A company researcher apologized on June 29 for a test in January 2012 that altered the number of positive and negative comments that almost 700,000 users saw on their online feeds of articles and photos. Disclosure of the experiment prompted some members to express outrage on Twitter about the research as a breach of privacy. The U.K. data regulator’s probe of the social network was reported earlier by the Financial Times.
