Feedback at 5:00: Like, or Dislike?

Last night on 9&10 News at 5:00 we told you about thousands of Facebook users selected for a psychological study.

But, none of them knew about it.

Back in 2012, the social media giant showed “upbeat” posts on some users’ feeds, while others saw negative posts.

The study found people who got bad news were slightly more likely to write negative posts, while those who heard good news responded more positively.

The uproar is growing over what happened.

Do you think Facebook went too far or was the study harmless?

It’s today’s Feedback at 5:00.
