Facebook launches app that will pay users for their data

A new Facebook app will allow users to sell the company data on how they use competitors’ apps.

Facebook announced Tuesday that it is recruiting participants to download its new app Study from the Google Play store. Once it is downloaded, it will transmit data with Facebook on what other apps the users have, what features they use, and how much time is spent on them.

New app comes months after Apple cracked down on Facebook for similar apps that paid users for extensive data on phone usage.
