Research Findings From MyVitiligoTeam
Social listening was conducted by analyzing organic conversations happening on MyVitiligoTeam between January 2020 and February 2021. MyVitiligoTeam is a social network of over 92,000 people living with or caring for someone with vitiligo. The analysis included reviewing all relevant conversations that were either posts, responses to those posts (comment) or Q&A. The analysis focused on understanding how people living with vitiligo discuss the burden of vitiligo, the emotional and physical impact, any cultural differences in how people experience and adjust to vitiligo and how they treat their vitiligo.
