Eating Disorders and Social Media

Bodywhys Research and Policy Officer, Barry Murphy, discusses the impact social media – including fitness trackers and diet apps – may have on people living with eating disorders. 

Top Tip: Social media can also be a positive tool for those who want to express how they’re feeling or share their recovery journeys for others in a similar situation. It can bring a lot of hope to those who think they’ll never be free of their eating disorder.
