People who use dating apps more likely to use ’dangerous’ weight-loss tactics, Harvard study shows 哈佛研究顯示,約會應用程式使用者較可能使用「危險的」減重手段

People who use dating apps such as Tinder are more likely to use drastic or unhealthy tactics to keep themselves thin, according to a new study.

一項新研究指出,使用Tinder等手機約會應用程式的人,較可能使用劇烈或不健康的手段,讓自己保持苗條。

Researchers at Harvard University studied 1,726 adult men and women to look for links between using dating apps and body image. Results showed, men and women using dating apps are more likely to use unhealthy ways to control their weight than those who didn’t use the apps.

哈佛大學研究人員針對1726名成年男女進行研究,探索約會程式使用與身體意象的關連性。結果顯示,使用約會程式的男女,比非使用者更可能使用不健康的方式控制體重。

They found that dating app users had higher odds of engaging in six unhealthy weight control behaviors - self-induced vomiting, using laxatives, fasting, using diet pills, using muscle-building supplements, and using anabolic steroids.

他們發現,約會程式使用者有更高機率,從事6項不健康的體重控制行為—自行催吐、使用瀉藥、禁食、使用減肥藥、使用增肌補充品,以及使用同化類固醇。

Researchers said social media and TV shows reinforce ’ideal’ body images which may drive people to drastic weight loss measures.

研究人員指出,社群媒體和電視節目強化「理想的」身體意象,可能驅使人們採用激烈的減重方式。

86 percent of internet users admit being duped by fake news:survey/調查顯示,86%網路使用者承認曾被假新聞愚弄

Eighty-six percent of internet users have been duped by fake news - most of it spread on Facebook - according to a global survey.

86%的網路使用者曾被假新聞愚弄—多數假新聞是在「臉書」上散播,一份全球性調查顯示。

Respondents said they want both governments and social media companies to crack down on these activities, which are contributing to a growing distrust of the internet as well as negatively impacting economies and political discourse.

調查回應者表示,他們希望政府與社群媒體公司取締這些行為,這類行為造成使用者愈來愈不信任網路,並對經濟與政治論述產生負面衝擊。

The United States took the lion’s share of the blame for spreading fake news, followed by Russia and China, according to the annual Ipsos survey of more than 25,000 internet users in 25 countries.

美國對假新聞的擴散必須承擔最大責任,接著是俄羅斯和中國,益普索市場研究公司(Ipsos)這份針對25國逾2萬5000名網路使用者所做的年度調查顯示。

Fake news appeared to be most prevalent on Facebook, but also appears on YouTube, blogs and Twitter, the pollsters found. The survey results showed people in Egypt were the most gullible while respondents in Pakistan were the most skeptical. The results also revealed widespread distrust of social media companies and growing concerns over online privacy and biases.

假新聞似乎在臉書上最氾濫,但也出現在YouTube、部落格及「推特」上,該民調機構發現。調查顯示,埃及人最容易受騙,而巴基斯坦的回應者最多疑。結果也揭露,人們普遍不信任社群媒體公司,對網路隱私與偏見也愈來愈憂心。
