Facebook Users in Britain Drunk in 76% of Pics

Drunk British PeopleSocial media users love to drink. Whether it be coffee or beer, social media users just have to satiate their thirst at all times, even in the pictures they post to these sites. And nowhere is this more prevalent than Great Britain where a recent study found that the average British person is under the influence of alcohol in three-fourths of his or her tagged Facebook pictures.

Researchers surveyed British people to reveal exactly how many Facebook pictures they have that show them consuming alcohol or were taken after they consumed alcohol. The study estimates that a total of 76% of the people's photographs surveyed had some connection with alcohol. According to Rebecca Huggler, Co-Founder of MyMemory, the conductors of the survey, "We're guilty of going out and having a good time, but nowadays the photos inevitably catch up with us online, so we wanted to look at how much these photos dominate our presence on social media sites."

In addition to that, researchers looked at their privacy settings and found that only 12% of the 1,781 Facebook users that were surveyed have their profiles set to "Private" with 58% allowing only their friends to see their pictures and an astonishing 26% of users allowing anyone and everyone to see their pictures whenever they want.

Over half of the people surveyed (56%) admitted that they had "drunk photos" that they would not want coworkers to see with 8% saying their photos may cause some "serious trouble at work". But it doesn't stop there as an additional 93% stated that they had tagged pics that were deemed "too embarrassing." Huggler also noted that many of the pictures with alcohol were taken during special occasions or get-togethers with friends or family. Huggler also predicts the holiday season will fuel more photo activity involving alcohol.
