Does Social Media Promote Drinking and Peer Pressure?
Most of us have all done it. We clicked “like” on an alcohol sponsored Facebook page. We have seen a recipe for an alcoholic beverage on Pinterest and thought, “Oh I want to try and make this.” We have all seen photos of a friend’s night out on the town or a party and wished we had been there. These responses beg the question: Does social media promote drinking? Researchers are finding out quickly that yes, social media promotes drinking or at least thinking about drinking.
