To carry out such experiments, ten different Phone Number List Instagram accounts were created, according to their own descriptions, focused on “thinspo” content , an amalgamation of the English words “thin” (thin) and “inspiration” (inspiration). The goal was for Phone Number List these accounts to resemble the accounts that so many young people create on Instagram to fuel their eating disorders. The social network provides shelter to a large community made up mostly of very Phone Number List young women who encourage each other to lose weight with fasting diaries and images of lean bodies without an ounce of fat.
Almost all the accounts involved in the Phone Number List experiments were contacted sooner or later by self-proclaimed weight loss coaches , profiles that help young people lose weight. In the conversations held between the accounts of the experiment and this Phone Number List second type of profile, the supposed «coaches» did not hesitate to request nude photos from profiles behind which there were sometimes young people who were obviously minors. In Phone Number List addition, the "coaches" use abracadabrantes threats to punish young people who exceed the calorie limits that they arbitrarily set themselves.
