Hanneke Hendriks and colleagues have recently published two articles in Journal of Medical Internet Research and Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking. Both articles focus on the role of alcohol-related posts on social networking sites such as Facebook and Instagram. Examples of such posts are photos showing people having dinner with wine bottles on the table or group party pictures of people holding beers. The articles show that alcoholposts often reflect daily and social settings (e.g., the dinner posts), that most do not show extreme drinking behavior (e.g., drunk people lying on the ground), and that they play an important social role in the daily lives of adolescents and young adults (i.e., they often share these posts [tagging others] and like and comment on them).
