Abstract

The goal of this project is to determine the success rate of weight loss interventions through Facebook done by UMMS. Dr. Sherry Pagoto and the staff at UMMS conducted Facebook weight loss interventions through two different groups. Each group was using a different strategy for the intervention. Through our analysis of data provided from both groups, we determined which types of intervention strategies and topics were more successful at engaging the attention of the participants.
