I have to disagree with the idea that Facebook’s forced sharing is for the benefit of researchers. For starters, Facebook has never cared about appeasing researchers. They have usually been cold to the academic community, and the codes of their site (computer and legal) make it nearly impossible to gather data from the service for research.

In addition, ethical researchers won’t be very happy with this arrangement. It violates the research ethic of keeping information private and anonymous unless there is a compelling research interest to do otherwise, and ultimately it violates the respect for individuals that is central to research ethics.
