FTA: In a survey of 2,000 households, 25% of users said they falsified information in their profiles to protect their identity

And by that, they mean embarrassing details about their identity.

The 25% who admit they lie are telling the truth. The other 75% who say they truthful on Facebook are lying.

This just in, the new Library of Alexandria is mostly porn, ads, mouthy cowards anonymously slinging insults and disingenuous attention whores. The ghetto is how, not where you live.

It's true. I'm a 6'9 Olympic bodybuilder with a Nobel Prize in mathematics. The numbers are accurate.

So, im not a super model/secret agent/tap dancer/fashion designer/astronaut?


Are you sure about that?

I find it hard to believe that 75% of Facebook users are that dumb. And I'm no optimist.

This is why I prefer pubs to the Internet. On the Internet, you only have an opportunity to break the ninth commandment. In a pub, if you're lucky, you might get to break the seventh, as well.

Also, in pubs, there's draft beer.

Facebook is just a spy game and counterintelligence is a valid strategy.

Sure, the only way to win is not to play but what's the fun in that.

/irritating the relatives while not having to actually see them? I love the 21st century!

99% of the people lying on their Facebook profiles were doing this:

STATUS: Married Single

They didn't have any way of checking the other lies.

I have two Facebook accounts, one for family, coworkers and friends, and the other one is for poking fun at family, coworkers and friends. The friends lists aren't mutually exclusive, some make both, some are fodder for the other.

But I really am a sexy librarian who moonlights as a rouge astrophysicist in her spare time, what? You don't believe me? *sigh* everyone's a critic except for my Fb friends. Did I neglect to mention my giant boobs, natural red hair and sexy voice? 'Cause that's all true as well.

/ok, only the second part is, and no, they're not *that* huge and oookay, the red hair is actually unnatural. The truth hurts, I'm going to go and cry now.

I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row.

I woo women with my sensuous and godlike trombone playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.

Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon Basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Mets, I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I'm bored, I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge.

I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don't perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail. I have been caller number nine and have won the weekend passes. Last summer, I toured New Jersey with a traveling centrifugal-force demonstration team. I bat .400. My deft floral arrangements have earned me fame in international botany circles. Children trust me.

I can hurl tennis rackets at small moving objects with deadly accuracy. I once read Paradise Lost, Moby Dick and David Copperfield in one day and still had time to refurbish an entire dining room that evening. I know the exact location of every food item in the supermarket. I have performed several covert operations for the CIA. I sleep once a week; when I do sleep, I sleep in a chair. While on vacation in Canada I successfully negotiated with a group of terrorists who has seized a small bakery. The laws of physics do not apply to me.

I balance, I weave, I dodge, I frolic, and all my bills are paid. On weekends, to let off steam, I participate in full-contact origami. Years ago I discovered the meaning of life, but forgot to write it down. I have made extraordinary four course meals using only a mouli and a toaster oven. I breed prize-winning clams. I have won bullfights in San Juan, cliff-diving competitions in Sri Lanka and spelling bees at the Kremlin. I have played Hamlet, I have performed open-heart surgery, and I have spoken with Elvis.

Don't cry. I have naturally red hair and huge boobs and I can tell you it's really not that great.

I actually know and have physically met about 98% of the people on my friends list, so I'm not really worried about people lying to me. I don't understand friend whores who have 700 people on their list whom they've never met.

Exactly. I don't use FB to find new friends, mostly get in contact with old friends, old Army buddies, or relatives. I can only think of 2 of them that would make up bullshiat to impress people, and I'm fairly good at knowing when they're doing so, so it doesn't really bug me.

sometimes those 'friend whores' are just people who play the games on FB. moving up or progressing in some games requires acquiring a higher level of 'friends'. in the past i played three different games where i eventually had 500 names or more for each game. it was actually time consuming to make those connections -- which you would later have to manipulate status of one at a time so they did not appear on your main page. i wasted a huge amount of time on FB games until i finally realized i was pissing my life away.
