Citizen Browser: How We Built a Facebook Forensics Tool

Zoom Room 3A

In this session, we want to share why and how we built the Citizen Browser project at The Markup, a data-driven initiative built to crack social media algorithms and examine the hidden decisions companies make regarding what content to amplify to their users (For more information, please visit: https://themarkup.org/citizen-browser). After introducing the objectives and the design of the Citizen Browser, we will have an open-ended discussion about privacy protection, data collection and our reporting. We will close the session with the crowdsourcing of other ideas to keep interrogating the data and recommendations to replicate Citizen Browser projects in other places.
