Facebook partners with researchers to study its impact during US election

Facebook said that it will work with a group of 17 independent researchers to examine the impact of the social media site on society during the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

The company expects between 200,000 and 400,000 users to opt into the project, which will log what they see and how they behave on social media.

Facebook said findings of the studies will not be published until the middle of next year. The initiative expands on its Social Science One project with academics who study political impacts of social media.
