Do Social Media Pics Influence Certain Risk Behaviors?

The type of photos you post online on Facebook and MySpace can influence your friends' behaviors, says a new study. Researchers from the University of Southern California found that teens with close friends who uploaded pictures of themselves partying, drinking and smoking were more likely to partake in the same behaviors compared to those who did not have friends who posted these types of images, writes Science Daily.
