Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||Social Media Intervention for Young Adult Smokers|
- 7-day point prevalence abstinence at 3 months [ Time Frame: 3 months post baseline ]Reports of no smoking in the 7 days prior to the 3 month assessment. Biochemical verification of abstinence will also be recorded.
- 7-day point prevalence abstinence at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months post baseline ]Reports of no smoking in the 7 days prior to the 6 month assessment. Biochemical verification of abstinence will also be recorded.
- 7-day point prevalence abstinence at 12 months [ Time Frame: 12 months post baseline ]Reports of no smoking in the 7 days prior to the 12 month assessment. Biochemical verification of abstinence will also be recorded.
- Reduction in cigarettes smoked by at least 50% between Baseline and each follow-up timepoint [ Time Frame: 3, 6, and 12 months post baseline ]Reduction will be assessed at 3, 6, and 12 month follow-ups.
- Quit attempts [ Time Frame: 3, 6, and 12 month post-baseline ]Quit attempt during the follow-up period at 3, 6, and 12 months post-baseline.
- Health risk behaviors [ Time Frame: 3, 6, and 12 months post baseline ]We will assess prevalence rates of health risk behaviors other than smoking including recent alcohol and illicit drug use, poor sleep quality, sedentary behavior, poor diet, depression, and high risk sexual behavior.

Experimental: Facebook intervention
Assignment to private group on Facebook with 3 months of content delivered to the group.
Behavioral: Facebook intervention
90 days of Facebook messaging, weekly Ask the Doctor sessions
Active Comparator: Referral
Referral to smokefree.gov website
referral to the NCI Smokefree.gov website
Participants will be randomized to one of two conditions: (1) a Facebook-delivered intervention tailored to readiness to quit smoking; or (2) the control condition (referral to the Smokefree.gov website). The intervention will include 12 weeks of Facebook-based messages and activities tailored to participants' stage of change.
Assessments will occur at baseline, 3, 6, and 12 months follow-up. Assessments will include measures on smoking patterns and thoughts about abstinence. All participants who report no past 7-day smoking will be asked to give biochemical verification of smoking status with saliva cotinine test kits that will be mailed to participants.
