3-in-4 people are drunk in their Facebook photos

275x250.jpg Over three quarters of people are 'drunk' in their tagged Facebook photos, it has been found.

A recent study discovered that the average Briton’s Facebook photos were taken when the subject was under the influence of alcohol.

The discovery was made as part of a poll of 1,781 people into the relationship between Brits and the photos they have on social media profiles.

Asked to estimate what percentage of the photos they are ‘tagged’ in on their profile had been taken after/whilst drinking alcohol, the average number was 76%.

And while just a tenth have their privacy settings to limit looking at tagged photos to just themselves, over half, 56%, admitted that they had ‘drunk photos’ on their profile that they would not want their work colleagues to see.
8% even admitted that they were tagged in photos on their profile that they believed could get them in ‘serious trouble at work'.

Rebecca Huggler of MyMemory.com, which conducted the study, said: "We’re all 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.

"The fact that over three quarters of the average Brits’ Facebook photos are under the influence of alcohol was certainly interesting to find out, particularly when you consider what this says about us as a nation enjoying a drink or two!"
