Abstract [en]

This paper presents the results from a two month-long study of a group of people participating in an online health-community on overweight. The relation between their contributions in the community and their experienced weight change was investigated. The results show a tendency towards that the greater weight loss the community members experienced the more active they were in the conversations. When focusing on the online discussions more specifically concerned with learning problems, this relation was even more evident.
