A prime example is Facebook's in-house research team, which routinely uses data about the interactions among the network's 900 million users for its own studies, including a re-evaluation of the famous claim that any two people on Earth are just six introductions apart. (It puts the figure at five15.) But the group publishes only the conclusions, not the raw data, in part because of privacy concerns. In July, Facebook announced that it was exploring a plan that would give external researchers the chance to check the in-house group's published conclusions against aggregated, anonymized data — but only for a limited time, and only if the outsiders first travelled to Facebook headquarters16.
