Facebook New Study Program will Pay You in Exchange for Your Data

Facebook is relaunching its paid market research program called “Study” that was shut down a while ago, exclusive to the Android platform at present.

The program ‘Study’ is a Facebook Program that pays participants to share info about how they use apps. This helps build better products for the Facebook community.

It was shut down due to several reasons – Facebook was accused of  exploiting a loophole in Apple’s privacy regulations to gain deeper access to the phone, which violated Apple’s rules.

The program is back with a clear print of what it intends to achieve. According to Facebook,

We’ve learned that what people expect when they sign up to participate in market research has changed, and we’ve built this app to match those expectations. We’re offering transparency, compensating all participants, and keeping people’s information safe and secure.”

Who Can Participate?

Anyone above 18 years old can participate 

How it Works

It’s usually through an invite where a link will be sent to your mail to download the study app, install the app and give permission to the app to get your usage of data, in turn you get rewarded for it.

Before it was shut down, during the registration process, you’ll be asked to provide how you want to receive your reward via PayPal, but no info about how you’ll be rewarded now that’s it’s been reopened.

Note: the user-research program does not collect user IDs, passwords, or any of the participant’s content, such as photos, videos, or messages.

You only get paid for sharing data on how you used your apps.
