How do you know if your Facebook feed is biased against your political views?
Are you even listening to what people are saying?
A new study by psychologists at the University of Pennsylvania and the University at Buffalo suggests that your best bet is to look at what people say on Facebook, where they are talking, and what other people are sharing about it.
The researchers have published their findings in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General.
For the past decade, psychologists have been investigating how social media influence our behavior, but the best tools have been in humans.
They have been able to track people’s behavioral changes and detect social biases based on things like how people talk about their lives.
The new research is the first to look in-depth at how people interact on Facebook and see how they change over time, the researchers say.
“We wanted to see if people’s social behaviors changed in response to their Facebook status updates, and we found that people’s interactions changed when they were using social media,” said lead author Laura Oleson, a professor of psychology at the university.
“People who are on Facebook are more engaged in the conversation, they are more vocal, they use their social networks to build more positive interactions.
People tend to look for patterns in their behavior when they use Facebook, and this may explain why there have been reports of people using the platform to push their own political views, Olesons co-author Andrew M. Knepper said. “
These social changes can be quite subtle, and it’s easy to miss.”

People tend also to use Facebook to show their political views to others, so they may be more willing to take the bait.
Olesson and her colleagues focused on Facebook’s ability to influence people’s behavior, and how it changes over time.
They used Facebook as a test of whether people’s political views change based on their Facebook activity, and also on how they reacted to other people’s posts.
Facebook’s algorithms work by detecting what people post and when they post it.
If you see that someone else has posted something on Facebook about your topic, that’s a warning sign that something is wrong.
If someone else posts about the same topic, it’s not as big of a deal.
But if someone posts something about something that you don’t care about, that can be a signal that something else is wrong, too.
For example, in one study, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) asked Facebook users to share what they liked, disliked, or did not like on a topic.
In the last 24 hours, the average number of people sharing posts with their friends had increased by about 5 percent.
And in the first 24 hours of a study, a Facebook user was asked to rank the posts in order of popularity.
The results were telling.
People’s political viewpoints have increased over time based on the posts they shared on Facebook.
O’Brien and colleagues found that the percentage of posts they liked had increased significantly after a few hours, then decreased after 24 hours.
Olu-Jorke and colleagues also found that a significant increase in Facebook comments over the 24 hours after a post was posted had a significant effect on how people rated the post.
Olikson said this could be a sign of people having more information about their posts.
In other words, someone posting a comment may have information they’re not sharing with other people.
OLSEN: Social media bias in news stories can have a big impact on how Americans perceive the news article.
In a recent study, Facebook users who had read articles that criticized their own views were more likely to rate the article as negative than those who had seen those same articles in a positive light.
In another study, Olu’s team showed how people’s reactions to the stories changed based on whether or not the articles had been published in the past.
People who had not read a negative article about their own opinion had a higher rate of negative reactions.
Olieson said people who are not interested in reading negative articles on Facebook will likely look for those negative articles instead, but she said that even if you do not care about someone else’s political opinion, you should not ignore the content.
“I don’t think we’re going to stop trying to find the truth on social media.
We are, in fact, actively engaged in that,” Olesone said.
The problem, she added, is that many people are using Facebook to manipulate the public and, therefore, their own opinions.
The authors of the new study say they hope that their findings can be useful in helping to prevent people from engaging in social manipulation.
“Our goal is not to create an ethical model, but rather to understand how people use social media to influence their own lives,” O’Neill said.
“This research could have a tremendous impact on the way we respond to political messaging.”
