Promising Platforms for Doing Social Experiments Online

This Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 12:30 PM EST, Jerome Hergueux, a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at Sciences Po Paris and the University of Strasbourg and a Fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, will talk about “The Promises of Web-based Social Experiments“. Jerome has been exploring ways to conduct large-scale behavioral experiments online at an affordable cost. 

This poses important opportunities for academic and independent researchers alike, who need ways to probe the culture without having to land a major grant to do so.

In his talk, Hergueux will introduce the audience to one of the first online platforms specifically designed for conducting interactive social experiments over the internet to date. Plus, he’ll share the preliminary results of an experiment to help participants see the limitations and promises of online experimental economics as a tool for social research.
