The study intends to map Facebook’s pixel tracking network and get a better look at the kind of information it collects about users on different websites.

If you use Firefox and want to participate in this study, read more here.

Be aware that this study will be collecting a variety of info (listed at the link) about your computer browsing habits while you participate, but, quote, "Only deidentified metrics and models will be exported from our secure environment."  So think about what that means for you before signing up...
