|Foundational Integrity Research: 2021 Misinformation and Polarization request for proposals, Facebook Research|
|Descripción: (objetivo de la convocatoria, modalidades, áreas temáticas o demandas específicas, requisitos, montos mín. y máx. de fondeo)|
|Convoca a: faculty. Facebook’s integrity efforts are at the heart of the company’s mission to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together, because we want social technologies to be a place where people can express themselves freely, fairly, and safely around the world. Over the last few years we have increased our investment in people and technology to minimize the effects of negative experiences people encounter on our platforms. The effectiveness of these efforts relies strongly on our partnerships with social scientists to conduct foundational and applied research around challenges pertaining to platform governance in domains such as news, misinformation, politics, health, climate change, civic engagement, trust, polarization, and conflict. |

Affective polarization and online conflict
Misinformation versus authoritative content
Climate change on social media
Information processing around sensational, hateful, divisive, or provocative problematic content
