Texters Lie

According to new research, people using text messages are about 30% more likely to lie than if they are face-to-face. The incidences of lying also dropped for audio chat, since the people were more acutely aware of being scrutinized; in these cases, the lying was still nearly 20%.

The research involved 170 students from the University of British Columbia.
