    Another verb for get influenced

    "Young people are often drifted away by their peers." Is this sentence correct? Can we also say "are carried away or influenced?"How else would you say this sentence,

    Re: Another verb for get influenced

    No. Someone can't be "drifted away" by someone else. I'm not really clear what you're trying to say. If someone is "carried away" by someone else, they are physically picked up and moved to another location. Someone can be "influenced" by someone else, though.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
