Exaggerating on Facebook is making you paranoid

Nearly half of the survey's respondents admitted feeling "paranoia, sadness or shame" about the lies that they tell on social media sites. As a mom with a 13-year-old son, I have to say that this stuff worries me.

My son has a Facebook account and I make sure that he tries to only post safe and honest information. If my son were ever to be afflicted with the "digital amnesia" that affected 16% of the teens that responded to this survey, then how would he know if he was even telling the truth?

Bonus tip: Make sure that only family and friends can see your Facebook photos

Social media is a great way to connect with your friends and family. It's also an easy place to make up lies.

When those lies become reality, well, I think everyone needs to do a little bit of soul searching.
