New studies reveal that the frequent Facebook users not only sharing pictures and videos but also a greater risk of eating disorder.
Pamela K Keel, Psychology Professor and researcher of Florida State University held a study among 960 college women and found that women spend more time on Facebook has higher levels of disorder of eating than others.
Women who gave greater importance on receiving comments and “likes” on their status updates and they compare their own photos to friend's posted photos shows the highest levels of eating disorder.

Keel said “Facebook provides a fun way to stay connected with friends, but it also presents women with a new medium through which they are confronted by a thin ideal that impacts their risk for eating disorders”.

The study is shows that spending 20 minutes on Facebook actually contributes to the risk of eating disorders by reinforcing women’s concerns about weight and shape and increasing anxiety.The finding is significant because the research reveled the fact that more than 95 per cent of the women who participated in the study use Facebook, described checking the site multiple times a day, typically spending 20 minutes during each visit.That means more than an hour on the site each day.

“Now it’s not the case that the only place you’re seeing thin and idealised images of women in bathing suits is on magazine covers, now your friends are posting carefully curated photos of themselves on their Facebook page that you’re being exposed to constantly. It represents a very unique merging of two things that we already knew could increase risk for eating disorders,” Keel said.Researchers have already recognised the powerful impact of peer/social influences and traditional media on the risk for eating disorders, addition to that the hero is 'facebook'.

“Eating disorders are associated with the highest rates of mortality of any psychiatric illness,” Keel said. Ironically, Facebook may be one of the best ways to employ intervention strategies, like encouraging women to a stop to “fat talk,” researchers said.
however, the research is significant because it may lead to eating disorders, which are among the most serious forms of mental illness
