Facebook on Tuesday launched an app that will pay users to share information with the social media giant about which apps they're using. The company previously rolled out two similar apps that tracked what activities people did on their phones. But both were shut down after drawing criticism for infringing on privacy and for violating Apple's App Store guidelines. Facebook said the new app, called Study, is different than the previous two and was built from scratch.
