Social Networking sites like Facebook always wanted to give people real world social experience and unfortunately it has actually become a social networking place where you need to be conscious about your image just like the real life. On Facebook and Twitter people try to appear nicer and happier than they really are. Reason is simple, your identity is fully visible and anything you say or post will be make or destroy your image.
