In honor of International Cat Day, we revisit KDnuggets cartoon that looks at the Facebook data science experiment on emotion manipulation and the importance of happy kittens.
Recent Facebook emotional contagion experiment where they manipulated newsfeed and emotions of 700K users, has received a lot of attention and backlash.
KDnuggets cartoon by Ted Goff examines the situation.
