Can you believe this study was done by The National Center on Addiction and Substances Abuse at Columbia?

 

Here's what the authors of the article say which also expresses my opinion on that:

"While the study’s authors seem to try to be linking social networking to these bad habits, we don’t really see much of a connection. Teens have been doing a lot of smoking, drinking, and drugging far before social networking came about in 2004(ish)."

 

Luckily the parents have also detected the missing logic behind the statistical correlations:

 

"However, the study found that 9 of 10 parents do not think teens spending time on social networking sites like Facebook are likelier to drink or use drugs."
