Lying in Text Messages

Researchers state people are more likely to lie when text messaging. A study from the University of British Columbia found that people felt more comfortable hiding he truth through text messages. Study co-author and associate professor Ronald Cenfantelli states since you can not see the receiver of the text message it is easier to lie. He also explains when face to face one reads body language, eye contact, and other factors to determine if the person is lying. The professor further explained that text messaging is useful but when in doubt face to face communications is the way to go.
