Political behaviour and the acoustics of social media : Nature Human Behaviour
"Social networks are not a new phenomenon — people have always associated with like-minded others — but the advent of social media has led to a vast increase in the amount of social information that we see. We need data and experiments to understand how this information shapes our political landscape."

Facebook Ad Categories - ProPublica Data Store
"This dataset includes two tables: data on the interest categories Facebook shows to users and the ad groups its shows to advertisers. ProPublica used this data to show that Facebook tells its users a lot of things it knows about them, but not all the things it's selling to advertisers. Interest category data was compiled using a Chrome extension, built by ProPublica reporters. The extension showed users the interest categories Facebook assigned to them, and gave users the opportunity to share all of these categories with ProPublica. The data shared did not include any identifiable user information. Through this extension, ProPublica crowdsourced 52,235 unique interest categories. The second table contains data scraped from the company's ad buying portal. This table shows what audiences Facebook allows ad buyers to target. "

Blue Feed, Red Feed - WSJ.com
"Facebook’s role in providing Americans with political news has never been stronger—or more controversial. Scholars worry that the social network can create “echo chambers,” where users see posts only from like-minded friends and media sources. Facebook encourages users to “keep an open mind” by seeking out posts that don’t appear in their feeds. To demonstrate how reality may differ for different Facebook users, The Wall Street Journal created two feeds, one “blue” and the other “red.” If a source appears in the red feed, a majority of the articles shared from the source were classified as “very conservatively aligned” in a large 2015 Facebook study. For the blue feed, a majority of each source’s articles aligned “very liberal.” These aren't intended to resemble actual individual news feeds. Instead, they are rare side-by-side looks at real conversations from different perspectives."
