Abstract

This paper reviews alcohol mobile phone applications ("apps") which carry alcohol promotional material. It reviews literature relevant to alcohol advertising in social media, particularly on the youth market, and the efficacy of current regulatory activity. The paper identifies a large number of free pro-alcohol apps as well as weaknesses in current legislation restricting alcohol promotion and questions the ethical stance of organizations such as Google and Apple in providing access platforms. The paper concludes with recommendations for further research into the actual impact of apps and other forms of social and user generated content activity.
