Top 20 lies on Facebook

facebook_glasses_2-660x523A study of 2,000 people found the average Facebook user carefully composes their profile – falsely painting a picture of an exciting social life, sophisticated tastes and glamorous photos. But 80 per cent confessed they have doctored photographs, linked to articles to appear intelligent, or tagged themselves at locations they’ve never visited. Fake relationship statuses, misleading profile pictures and fabricated status updates were other common cheats in the list of lies lurking behind the average online profile. The research, which was commissioned by domain specialists, found a large percentage feel ‘relentless pressure’ to give off the impression they lead more exciting lives than the reality.
