1 in 4 users lie on Facebook

What we’re about to tell you is so unexpected, James Cameron couldn’t make it up! Your perception of all those “Internet-friends” you’ve racked up by accepting anyone who’s requested you on Facebook… chances are, they’ve been lying to your face!

A Consumer Report’s Investigation found about one in every four Facebook users lies on their profile! It’s not for the sole purpose of making themselves look better, it’s all about privacy.

25% of users say they falsified their information to protect their identity! Sometimes users will create completely fabricated identities in order to protect their own information. Remember the movie Catfish?

Probably something you already knew, but it’s just a reminder that people lie online, just as in reality, so protect yourself and your information!
