Study: Social Media Usage Linked to Underage Drinking (US News & World Report)

US News & World Report: Study: Social Media Usage Linked to Underage Drinking. “ALCOHOL-RELATED SOCIAL media posts appear to influence youth alcohol consumption, a new study says. The study, published in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, examined associations between young adults’ drinking behavior and the photos and posts of alcohol-fueled parties and behaviors that fill their feeds on social media sites. Despite the pervasive use of social media among young adults, the study says, little is known about its effect on drinking patterns.”
