Publication: The Female Body on Social Media

Our essay “The Female Body on Social Media”, co-authored with long-time colleague professor Yusuf Kalyango Jr., has come out in the volume Social Media: A Reference Handbook, edited by Dr Kelli Burns. The essay presents an overview of knowledge on the relationship between social media and body image. We also present the findings of our research, which asked women about the content of  their Facebook posts related to their weight, body image, dieting, or weight loss.
