Facebook logged the posts you wrote but then erased and never posted in the first place, and now they kindly published a study about it :thinkhappy: (PDF)

@Gargron If it wasn't for RL friends and job opportunities, I'd be deleting by now.

(also great 2 find out that Facebook isn't required to get ethics approval for any of this, at least in the US: )

@Gargron Wow, but does that ever seem to violate a lot of ethical research guidelines.

@Gargron It doesn't surprise me. They did that "mood altering" experiment a few years back.

@Gargron Gmail uses the same technology, though. Both Google and Facebook has done so for the last couple of years.
