4. The Truth Factor

While it is very possible to “catfish” or otherwise lie to someone without being detected, a lot of people are more honest online than they are in person. Think about it; have you ever felt like you couldn't be yourself around certain people?

Have you had to “put on a happy face” and be polite when you feel anything but? This isn't a problem online; you can be as “real” as you want, when you want. This isn't saying you get to be mean so much as that you don't have to walk on eggshells as much.
