Description

Short abstract: Videos of college students drinking are readily available on social media. Is watching such videos related to attitudes toward college drinking culture? Our 125 college student participants indicated how often they watch such videos on different social media platforms and completed a measure of the role of alcohol in college life. The predicted correlation was not found, although students who drink did watch more frequently. Fear of missing out (FOMO) was positively correlated with attitude. For female participants Fear of Missing out was also positively correlated with consumption of alcohol.
