Insecure Britain: A third of us spend more time on Facebook than talking to friends in real life

A survey of 2,000 social network users has given us a few home truths to think about.

For British people on social networks like Facebook and Badoo seem quite happy to lie about what they have done and who they have seen – and spend more time keeping their virtual life up-to-date than keeping up with ‘real-life’ friendships.

Some people admit their online friendships are all about looking ‘cool and interesting’ – with a third of us lying in order to look better.

Equally, a third of people admit they are more likely to speak to strangers over a social network compared to face-to-face, a third spend more time chatting with online friends than with offline friends, and a quarter of us feel more confident communicating online.
