Jasmine Moore -Thinspiration

Posted: November 6, 2013 in Uncategorized

A popular thing among social media outlets such as twitter and instagram is trending topics. A topic is considered “trending” when there is a considerable amount of people using a hashtag (#) followed by a saying or quote along with what they think about the “hashtaged” topic. Once such fad that is all over instagram and twitter is “#thinspiration”. This hashtag is used by tweens to show their followers what inspires them to not eat and be “thin.” This promotion of being hungry is becoming a sub-culture that is made possible through social media platforms like instagram and twitter. By doing a simple search of #thinspiration on instagram i found hundreds of pictures like this one using hunger as a lifestyle and ideology.
