Abstract

We present a new platform to do online, social influence experiments – the Controlled, Online Social Experimentation (CLOSE) system. We describe it’s development, potential uses and justification for use. The CLOSE platform can be used to do long term (weeks to months) experiments in which we can manipulate the interaction networks (within the experiment) of a diverse (drawn from Amazon Mechanical Turk (AMT)) subject pool.
