I see it everywhere but apparently I'm 26 going on 97 because I have no idea what it is! Is it more messaging or social media?

If I make one for ED purposes can people not from here find me??

Dont mind me I'm going to die in my sleep tonight from old age 不不不

It's like a group messaging platform. You can invite people to your discord and it's basically a big Chatroom.

It would be difficult for someone to find you on it without having your discord ID number. So if it's for Ed purposes, I severely doubt anyone else would find you

It's both for desktop and mobile (if you get the app).

You can either use it to send DMs, or you can create/join a "server." Servers have multiple themed "channels" such as "general chatroom," "selfie posts," and "art" etc. 

You can find servers to join by googling for different genres online. Just search something like "eating disorder discord."

 

And no, people can't find you unless you send them your user number. It can be as anonymous as you want, as long as you don't use your real name or give away identifiable details on public servers.

 

It's also honestly a great way to send personal messages to people, if you don't want to give them your phone number or email.
