I don't know if I was one of the Facebook test subjects, but I can say that it's a dangerous game they are playing by manipulating the feeds. As one with an anxiety disorder, I'm not going to social media for things to cause more anxiety. I'm going to connect and find at least some of the positive stuff in life.
So, if Facebook or anyone else is purposefully manipulating information to see what happens, they are playing a very dangerous game. Under the right circumstances, they could be contributing to the death of an individual.
Facebook and any other mad scientists that decides they want to play with emotions should think very carefully about what they may be doing. It's easy to sit behind a keyboard somewhere and ignore the human aspect of actions. But it's very, very dangerous. Stop it.
