Not much will change for fans of the singer-songwriter/actor/multi-instrumentalist though; Prince rarly posted on his Facebook or Twitter. In September, the artist held a three-hour Q&A on his Facebook page, only to answer one question regarding the ideal frequency of recorded music.

Though he had a promising start on the site, Prince was also very inactive on Twitter, with most of the tweets on his shared account with his backing band, 3rdEyeGirl, coming from 3rdEyeGirl.

Facebook Uses A Social Experiment To Manipulate Users’ Emotions

Facebook2

(PCM) I somehow feel so used!  It seems that Facebook has been taking part in a little social experiment that began back in 2012.
