Users shouldn't be angry over Facebook's experiment

  • Facebook users are angry about the fact that Facebook altered their News Feeds without their knowledge in order to conduct an experiment. However, David Weinberger of CNN notes that all online companies are carrying out these kind of tests. 

    The issue with this particular test was that it played with users' moods and emotions, but is that something new?

    After all, our feeds are based on what works for the company and "only secondarily based on what works for us as individuals and as a society," Weinberger writes.
