Facebook launches app that will pay users for their data

Facebook announced a new product called ‘Study’. The idea behind it is to pay people to let Facebook track their activity on the competitor’s apps.

The app intends as a market research program and tracks what apps are installed, how often are they used and what features are preferred.

Facebook also tracks the user’s location, device, and network type, while not having access to passwords, content, messages and photos.

Study is currently available only in the US and India, but Facebook promised to release it worldwide over time. The paid fee is currently unspecified and users must be 18+ to participate.

Yelp, Bloomberg and Tinder agree: abortion bans are ‘bad for business’

With this message, the letter signed by around 180 CEOs was published in The New York Times. The letter was aimed at lawmakers in states that have recently passed abortion bans. The letter was signed by the likes of Bloomberg’s Peter Grauer, Yelp’s Jeremy Stoppelman, and Tinder’s Elie Seidman.

Part of the statement reads: “Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health, independence and economic stability of our employees and customers.

“Simply put, it goes against our values and is bad for business. It impairs our ability to build diverse and inclusive workforce pipelines, recruit top talent across the states, and protect the well-being of all the people who keep our businesses thriving day in and out.”

Eight production companies, including Disney, WarnerMedia and Netflix, issued a similar response at the end of last month by threatening to cease filming in Georgia due to its strict views on abortion.
