Social media’s great because it helps us connect and stay in touch with friends and family. One downside is that many Facebook timelines are filled with mundane updates, because most of us aren’t that interesting. But if you’re concerned about how awesome people think you are, you could just lie.

According to a new study, 1 in 4 women who use social media fib about how great their lives are, exaggerating or distorting what they've been up to.

The study also revealed the most common reasons for lying on Facebook were not wanting to appear boring, jealousy at someone else’s great life and wanting to impress others.

Get over it, other than the stray day of excitement we are all pretty boring.
