Facebook introduces a new application that actually pays the user for accessing their phone’s data. This new application from Facebook tracks all the other apps user installed on their phone, what are the features these applications hold that leads the user to download them and how much time the user spends in hovering around with these applications. On sharing these contents with Facebook, the company will pay you for your data.
Not all smartphone users can have direct access to the Facebook Study application. Initially, Facebook pops up the ads where users need to click on it and need to complete a certain initial form procedure. Once Facebook confirms your request, they will send you the invitation link from where you can download the application. To log into the application, the user doesn’t need a Facebook account.
Users need to add their PayPal account for getting the payment from Facebook. Facebook has not confirmed the actual amount users will get on sharing their phone’s content. Keeping privacy as the lead practice, Facebook Study apps will not hold the user’s messages, passwords or any personal data. Rather the apps hold all the related stuff users are figuring out in other applications.
Facebook introduces this technology to make sure their product will perform in a similar manner and tries to engage users as much as the time they can.
Initially, Facebook to launch the application in the US and India only. As soon as it starts taking the market, Facebook to launch the applications in more region. The applications are currently available for Android users only.
