News flash: Everybody is socializing online. According to an infographic from Schools.com, a resource for education information, we’re spending literally billions of minutes online every month talking to people. In some cases, we’re even missing real-life events so we can type about them online.
But when good news happens, we’re reporting it to everyone we know. Nearly two-thirds of people (62 percent) involved in the Badoo study referenced in the infographic say they’re using their updates to talk about engagements, pregnancies, and other great happenings.
And in other cases, we’re just making things up. Research shows that 24 percent of Americans are playing fast and loose with the truth on social media.
After the jump, check out a few stats.
