According to a survey in Britain by Optimum Research, On behalf of Direct Line Insurance, People lie more on Social networking sites like Facebook than in face-to-face conversation.
The Study based on a survey of over 2,000 people in UK found that people are more comfortable with being liar or dishonest on Facebook than they are speaking to someone in real life.
The survey has also revealed that just 20% of people like to keep themselves honest when communicating via Facebook while almost a third said they are more frank and honest to someone meet in person.
The Daily Telegraph quoted psychologist, Glenn Wilson, He said: “Modern technologies, such as smartphones, social networking, web cameras and instant messaging have been hailed as innovations in the way people interact, removing obstacles to conversation and allowing for openness of discourse”.
He added: “However, we sometimes use these means of communication rather than a face-to-face encounter or a full conversation when we want to be untruthful, as it is easier to fib to someone when we don’t have to deal with their reactions or control our own body language”.
