The existence of pro-eating disorder (pro-ED) communities has challenged many social media platforms, such as Instagram. These communities promote the adoption and progression of eating disorders, which are known to have negative impacts on health. Instagram has reacted by banning searches on several pro-ED tags as well as issuing content advisories on others. In response, the pro-ED community has adopted non-standard lexical variations of these moderated tags to circumvent restrictions. This research investigates the impacts of Instagram banning tags on the community.
We present our work on computing an average curve given a set of planar input curves, with select applications. This work, to be soon presented at the Symposium on Geometric and Physical Modeling, provides a mathematical formulation and a fast algorithm for the problem of finding an average curve, given a set of input curves. Applications in the field of animation and statistical analysis are highlighted.
