Attention girlies :)

Hi there!

I wonder if any girls out there would be willing to help me with some research I am doing for my third year dissertation?

My dissertation title is ‘The threads that keep me thin: Social media influences on body image and eating disorders’.

From this you may be able to see that I am interested in trying to understand the relationship (if there is one) between social media use and the influence this is having upon girls and women today, to the extent that this may influence unhealthy eating and health practices.

If any girls out there are interested in helping me who have witnessed or been affected by something they have seen on social media sites or forums regarding female body image, and/or have had or know someone who is affected by an eating disorder, please private message me your email address, I have a questionnaire and disclaimer form that I can email to you. The closing date for these to be returned to me is Sunday, August 31st, 2014.

There is not really an age limit although participants should really be aged 16 - 30(ish) years old.

Confidentiality during participation of my research will always be taken into account. No information will be shared, I will be the only one who reads and works with any responses received.

As many responses would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you everyone!
