Speaker: Professor Pete Edwards, University of Aberdeen
Dr Susan Pryde, Food Standards Scotland

Whether it is the endless Instagram pictures of meals,
celebrity food bloggers touting the latest fad diet, or Twitter
users commenting on their latest takeaway experience, it seems
that food is all over social media.

But is there more to this deluge of online material than people
just impressing their followers? Researchers at the University of
Aberdeen are working with Food Standards Scotland to investigate
if social media data can help understand and inform aspects of food policy, and aid routine monitoring in areas such as food
safety and fraud. Come along to hear speakers talk about their work and join a discussion about #fooddata.

FOOD AND SOCIAL MEDIA: JUST #FOODPORN OR A FORCE FOR GOOD?

SUITABLE FOR THOSE AGED 15+
