Researching Facebook and researching with Facebook. The story behind the app to verify the declared participation in cultural events

This is why the proposed research process had to include the analysis of Facebook data and research conducted through this service, especially that our studies touched upon user declarations concerning their interest and participation in cultural events.
Beyond the design and programming aspects, the challenge was also to verify the application itself. Since it used Facebook user data, it was necessary to register the app and verify its compliance with the terms and conditions of the portal itself.
