CONCERNS ARE BEING raised over a new alcohol-related social media craze. Kind of a modern-day chain letter — ‘neknominations’ involve people chugging back an alcoholic drink, posting the video on social media, and then nominating two friends to follow suit and do the same.
Alcohol Action Ireland says the new trend is a threat to the health and wellbeing of young people in Ireland, and further promotes “harmful binge drinking”.
The issue’s begun to receive more widespread media attention in Ireland today, after the craze was initially picked up on earlier this month.
So what do you think of ‘neknomination’?
