Alcohol and Social Networking Sites
Welcome to the website about Alcohol and Social Networking Sites. This site illustrates the findings of the NWO-funded Veni-project about alcohol-related posts on social networking sites such as Facebook and Instagram. In addition, this site will keep you informed about the (scientific) news on how adolescents and young adults communicate about alcohol on social media.
Veni-project: Alcohol on Social Networking Sites
This project investigates how and why young adolescents talk about alcohol on Social Networking Sites (SNS), as well as the effects of alcohol-related SNS-posts on young peoples´ alcohol consumption, and the conditions under which these effects occur. Moreover, an intervention-plan will be developed and tested to reduce the harmful effects of alcohol-related posts on SNS.
