It’s all about the risk: Facebook posts and drinking identity in college students.
The current study evaluated the role of alcohol-related Facebook posts and drinking identities in alcohol consumption. Undergraduates’ Facebook profiles were coded for alcohol-related information; drinking identity and alcohol use were assessed online. Increased alcohol-related Facebook posts were associated with increased drinking levels, particularly for those with lower drinking identities.
