Social Media makes it almost impossible for people with body image issues or history of eating disorders to have an easy scrolling time.
A feature that was introduced back in June has now been broadened, allowing users to filter out weight loss related ads on their news feeds.
“Body weight control” is the latest topic to be included on the list of topics that can be filtered out of users’ daily feeds.
TikTok banned fasting app ads and restricted advertisements from promoting ‘negative body image’ in 2020.
