I have posted this in another thread but realised I should have probably done so in here, apologies...


Hi all,
I posted on here a while back and am now doing some research into facebook and body image and the sometimes negative effects which social media can have on the way girls perceive themselves for my final MA dissertation.

Was wondering what girls thought about Facebook, has it ever made you worry about your weight/body? Be more critical about yourself? Spark off or worsen an eating problem? How does it make you feel?

Has Facebook/social networking caused you to get an eating disorder? Are you happy to speak up about it?

I'm looking to write an article exploring this and was wondering if there were any girls/women aged 16-30 ish with any thoughts on this and if anyone would be happy to chat to me about it and be named if the article gets published once finished.


I know from chatting with some of my friends it sometimes causes us to be a bit more critical about ourselves and worry about our weight.

Please reply to this thread with any thoughts ASAP or drop me a private message can give a private email if you would prefer.

Would also be interested in hearing if boys feel the same or have any opinions about it. Anything would be really helpful!
Thanks in advance
