Social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube, Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram are a great way for people to share news, seek guidance, and join in with communities of like-minded people.
But it can be hard to separate fact from fiction online, especially for questions affecting our health.
Dr Samia Amin is a medical doctor who spent 17 years working in Bangladesh and Malaysia before joining the Centre for Health Informatics at Macquarie University to undertake a PhD.
Her research aims to understand how friends, family, advertising, and other kinds of interactions on social media influence people’s perceptions and use of e-cigarettes.
This event is part of Inspiring Australia’s Talking Science series as part of National Science Week.
