Project "Like" is an independent Facebook research exercise started by me, a college student looking at a career in number crunching. Project "Like" will be ongoing for a number of years and over the course of that time, new "Like" criteria will be added regularly. Ultimately, visitors should expect to see thousands of different pages each with its own set of dynamics.
Who Can Participate in Project "Like"?
There is only one rule for you to participate in Project "Like": You have to be a registered Facebook user. This includes users from all over the world, although some criteria items such as the one used on our 'States' page will not be relevent to someone living in South Africa. There is and will be criteria that will allow all Facebook users the ability to contribute at any given time.
Why am I doing this?
I've always enjoyed crunching numbers so I am pursuing a career in data analysis. And this exercise will go a long way with enhancing my resume. What better source than Facebook can someone turn to in seeking data to analyze? With more than 500 million users to tap into, Facebook should return ample data. At least I hope so.
Although Project "Like" can technically be classified as a biased survey because some Facebook users may click the "Like" button more than once on some pages, I am including on these pages a number of "Like" buttons that users can click to let me know that they did. In a perfect world, this site would attract every single Facebook user in the world and the data would not be corrupted in any way. But given the situation (nothing's perfect), I should still be able to calculate a semi-accurate margin of error.
How Does Project "Like" Work?
It's easy. All you have to do is view the criteria and click the "Like" button on the appropriate choice. Let's start with a simple example from my Sex page:
