Last week, we covered how a Youtube user named JoAnnGrey has been offering support and advice for viewers who, like her, are experiencing hair loss, in an attempt to help shatter the stigma that she feels is still attached to female Alopecia. This week, we continue our series of articles on discussions concerning hair loss on social media by turning our attentions to the microblogging website Twitter.
Baldness in the Twitterverse
People have recently been using “baldness” and “hairloss” as hashtags – a clear sign of a current trending issue. #hairloss has been mentioned 314 times since the 21st of November this year, while #baldness has been mentioned 41 times in the same period. #recedinghairline seems to be a particularly popular hash tag, with 64 people hash tagging the term since 23rd November – it seems people may have a particular interest in frontal balding.
Although companies and clinics like The Belgravia Centre have posted some of those tweets, ordinary members of the public, voicing their concerns, queries and hopes about hair loss, have posted many others.
Belgravia Centre on Twitter
Look out for Belgravia on Twitter – we’re constantly looking for questions to answer, or sometimes just to have a bit of banter with somebody that has been talking about us. We’ll usually reply to Tweets about us, but also look to provide help and advice on Twitter for those who are worried about hair loss, so feel free to post your thoughts and see if we get back to you! We’ve provided some of our recent tweets to the right (you can click on the image for a bigger version).
Tweets you can rely on
Clearly, there are plenty of people on Twitter who are worried about hair loss, but unfortunately, some of the information being distributed there just isn’t based on scientific fact. If you are concerned about hair loss and you consider yourself one of the “Twitterati”, why not send us a tweet @Belgraviacentre? Our staff will be happy to provide you with some quick advice, or help you to get in touch with the centre and book your first appointment. Even better, follow us on Twitter or Facebook, or just send us a message.
