(DIS)HONESTY OF FACEBOOK COMMUNICATION

    My research project is about honesty on Facebook and how people use online communication to lie and create false identities in order to fulfill their aims. I shall try to examine people and get their anonymous and, hopefully, honest opinions about some doubts whereas the questions I am going to ask will help me get a bigger picture of how much people actually lie and what they expect from others on Facebook. Finally, I will try to show my findings/ results/ data in my work in a precise manner, so that anyone can see the real facts. The way I intend to collect the data is by setting up a poll on the Internet.
