Movez Lab


Online social networks such as Instagram, TikTok and Snapchat offer unprecedented technological possibilities to promote a healthy lifestyle among young people. For example, through influencers in their network.

SocialMovez investigates how health campaigns for young people can be spread more effectively through peer influencers in online social networks. Using innovative technologies in the field of data analysis, our researchers demonstrate that you can optimise online (health) campaigns without compromising the privacy of young people.
