Shiny Poll: Is social networking making us liars? Yay or nay?

Have you ever written a status update for Facebook or Twitter only to delete it before publishing because it didn’t sound cool enough? Or is your LinkedIn page perhaps filled with fancy descriptions like ‘master of content creation’ or ‘digital guru’ when in reality the only digital work you’ve done is a bit of personal blogging and ‘networking’ with your old school friends?

We’ve been discussing this in the office all week and now we ask you Shiny readers: is social networking making us liars? Are we being honest about who we are and what we like or are we guilty of presenting a better, more interesting version of ourselves online?

Take our poll or leave us a comment – we’d love to hear your thoughts!
