Facebook is more than just a social network, it is also officially an online science laboratory. The company has revealed in a research paper that it carried out a week-long experiment that affected nearly 700,000 users to test the effects of transferring emotion online. The News Feeds belonging to 689,003 users of the English language version were altered to see “whether exposure to emotions led people to change their own posting behaviors,” Facebook says. There was one track for those receiving more positive posts, and another for those who were exposed to more emotionally negative content from their friends. Posts themselves were not affected and…

Facebook’s experiment with manipulating the emotions of hundreds of thousands of users has quite rightly drawn criticism from people worried about the ethics of such a practice, no matter how scientific its approach.

Melike Şimşek (@MsWotton): Olumsuzluk Bulaşıcıdır

Olumsuzluk Bulaşıcıdır

Hayatta en kolay yayılan şeyler nedense hep olumsuz olanlardır. Arkadaş arkadaşın kötü alışkanlığını kopyalar, anne-babalarımız sürekli onların iyi değil olumsuz taraflarını aldığımızdan bahseder… Negatifin etki alanı pozitiften daha geniştir çoğu zaman.

Bu durum sadece günlük hayat pratikleri için değil, profesyonel dünya için de geçerli. Mesela bir blogpostunuzun ya da köşe yazınızın altında yapılan yorumlarda. Yapılan bir araştırmaya göre yazılar hakkında yapılan iyi yorumlar kayda değer bir fark yaratmazken, olumsuz yorumlar bakın yazıyla ilgili nelere sebep oluyor…
The Atlantic’ten Adam Felder aynı makaleyi değerlendirecek 2 katılımcı grubuyla bir çalışma gerçekleştirmiş. Bir grup makaleyi herhangi bir yorum yapılmamış haliyle okurken diğer grup bir dizi olumsuz yorumla birlikte okumuş. (Katılımcılara söylenen makaleyi okuyup değerlendirmek, yani yorumları okuyup okumamak onlara kalmış.) İki grubun da makaleyi çeşitli kriterlere göre değerlendirmesi istendiğinde olumsuz yorumlar eşliğinde okuyanlar makalenin kalitesini diğer gruba göre %8 oranında düşük bulmuş!
Peki bunun sebebi ne olabilir? Birden fazla şey söylemek mümkün. Yorumların herhangi birinin aklına gelen geçerliliği sorgulanabilecek şeyler olduğunu unutup makale hakkındaki görüşümüzü etkilemesine izin vermek bunlardan biri. Bir diğeri ise yazının başındaki örneklerdeki ”bulaşıcı etki”. Bulaşıcı etki sadece makale yorumlarında değil, süpermarket raflarında da karşımıza çıkıyor. Duke İşletme Okulu’ndan Andrea Morales’in yaptığı bir araştırmaya göre bizde kötü duygular uyandıran bir ürün yanında sergilenen farklı ürünlerle ilgili algımızı da etkiliyor! İşin kötüsü negatif çağrışımlar saman alevine benzemezler. Bilinçdışımıza atılan negatif tohumlar zaman içerisinde mahsullerini vermeye başlar. Yani yazılarıyla çığır açmayı hedefleyen bir yazar maalesef bilinçdışı etkiler sonucu yapılan yorumların kurbanı olabilir.
Yoruma açık olmayan tasarımlar yapmak bir çare mi? Felder’a göre evet. Felder yorum özelliğini kaldıran web sitelerinin sayfa görüntülenme ve kullanıcıların tekrar sayfayı ziyaret etme oranlarında artış olduğunubelirtiyor. Maalesef bu da kullanıcılarla ilgili birçok ”insight”tan mahrum kalmaya neden oluyor.
İnsanların yorum yapabildiği ama yapılan yorumların ”ürünü” etkilemediği bir ortak payda bulmak da mümkün. İyi bir moderasyonla yorumları yönetmek, spam niteliğinde yazılanları anında elemek, ya da okuyucuları yorumlar altında değil de ”tartışma odaları” gibi alanlarda buluşturmak gibi çözümler bulunabilir. Bu araştırma sosyal medyacıların omzuna yeni bir yük bindirdi, bakalım olumsuz yorumların bulaşıcılığını etkilemek için ne gibi önlemler alınacak?
