Social media profiles may reveal more personal details than just hometowns and hobbies — they could help identify underage college students at risk for problem drinking, a new study suggests. Dr. Megan Moreno of the University of Wisconsin — Madison and colleagues explored links between alcohol use and intoxication/problem drinking on Facebook, as well as self-reported problem drinking using the 10-question Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test clinical scale. The audit assesses consumption, dependence and harm or consequences of alcohol use.
