Facebook has relaunched its paid market research program called “Study”. The program was shut down some months ago but it is now exclusive to the Android platform at present.

 ‘Study’ as it is known is a Facebook Program that pays participants for sharing information about how they use apps which is not limited to Facebook owned apps alone. The aim was to help build better products for the Facebook community.

It was shut down due to several reasons – Facebook was accused of exploiting a loophole in Apple’s privacy regulations to gain deeper access to the phone, which violated Apple’s rules.

A statement from facebook said that “We have learned what people expect when they sign up to participate in market research has changed, and we’ve built this app to match those expectations. We’re offering transparency, compensating all participants, and keeping people’s information safe and secure.”

Who Can Participate?
You must be 18 years old or above before you can participate

How it Works
You need someone to invite you via an link which will be sent to your mail to download the study app. install the app and give permission to the app to get your usage of data, in turn you get rewarded for it. Maybe you can get someone to send you the invite link.

There is currently no clear instruction on how the users will be paid but formally, facebook requested for PayPal details as a means of payments.

Note: the user-research program does not collect user IDs, passwords, or any of the participant’s content, such as photos, videos, or messages.
