How we really look when texting & posting to Facebook

When it comes to sharing our thoughts with the world, most everyone exaggerates sometimes. Every now and then, we may downplay what we’re feeling. And, hopefully not too often, most of us will tap out a little white lie.

Though we might be laughing (or crying) on the inside, most people probably can’t tell what we’re really thinking based on the things we type. How so? Here are 20 examples showing how many of us actually look when we’re posting to social media or texting friends and family.
1. “OMG that is awesome! So happy for you!!!”
