Does Facebook lead young women to dangerous diets?
July 27, 2015
A new study provides insight into how Facebook use by young women can lead to poor body image and risky dieting. The study included 128 college-aged women who completed an online survey about their eating habits and their emotional connection to Facebook – such as how much time they spent on the social networking site and number of Facebook friends – and whether they compared their bodies to friends’ bodies in online photos.
Women who had a greater emotional connection to Facebook were more likely to compare their bodies to their friends’ bodies and to engage in more risky dieting, the study found. However, those who did not use the site to compare themselves to others were less likely to be concerned about body image or engage in risky dieting, the research showed.
The University of North Carolina School of Medicine study is published in the August issue of the Journal of Adolescent Health. “I think that Facebook could be an amazing tool to nurture social support and connections with friends and families. And if you’re getting that kind of social support from the site, you might be less likely to be worried about your body size,” senior author Stephanie Zerwas, assistant professor of psychiatry, said in a university news release. “But if you’re using it as a measuring stick to measure how your body appears in pictures compared to your friend’s body, Facebook could also be used as a tool to foster dangerous dieting behavior,” she added.

THIS COULD PUT BIOPSIES OUT OF BUSINESS
At last month’s American Physical Society meeting, Dartmouth researcher Mary Ann Myeek described a new laser system that will help doctors identify a malignant tumor without having to do a biopsy. The laser system can detect slight chemical and structural changes in a tissue that may signify the very early stages of cancers. When tested on patients with colon polyps, this new detection method was just as accurate as conventional procedures.
Normally, when a doctor finds a suspicious growth a piece of the tissue is removed and sent to laboratory for analysis. Getting the result can take days even weeks. Myeek’s new laser system, however, gives immediate answers, and it’s much less invasive than a biopsy. Myeek’s team tested the laser system on 17 patients who were undergoing routine colon examinations. Every time a polyp was discovered, doctor took a picture of the tissue’s molecular structure with the laser. For comparison, a tissue sample was also biopsied. In nearly every case, the two methods gave similar results. Myeek says this device could be widely available in a few years.

THE FUTURE OF TWITTER
 Microblogging platform Twitter has 32 million users, an increase
 from about 2 million a year ago, according to research mentioned
 in the Wall Street Journal. Some Internet measurement services
 show that figure increasing 50% to 100% month over month.
 While it is not clear that Twitter will become as large as social
 networks MySpace and Facebook or video-sharing site YouTube,
 the company could certainly have 50 million visitors by the end of
 the year.
 Because Twitter can be used with ease on both PCs and mobile
 devices, and because it limits users to very short messages of 140
 characters or fewer, it has become one of the largest platforms in
 the world for sharing real-time data. A number of large businesses and celebrities have hundreds of thousands of
 followers on Twitter.
 As Twitter grows, it will increasingly become a place where companies build brands, do research, send information to
 customers, conduct e-commerce and create communities for their users. Some industries, like local retail, could be
 transformed by Twitter - both at one-store operations that cater to customers within a few blocks of their locations and
 at the individual stores of giant retail operations like Wal-Mart (WMT). In either case, having the opportunity to tell
 customers about attractive sales and new products can be done at remarkably low cost while providing for greater
 geographic accuracy.
 Twitter users have set up their own rules of conduct when using the service, not unlike those with MySpace and
 Facebook. These rules were not put together by Twitter itself, which mandates only rules of use. Like many
 social-network sites, Twitter is self-governed by its members, and companies must take that into account as they join
 the service.
 Twitter is still in the early stages of developing a plan for making money as a company, but plenty of large corporations
 like Starbucks are already using it as a marketing tool. Twitter will probably evolve into both a community of individuals
 and a community of companies that provide goods and services for those individuals.
