A study conducted by the University of British Columbia, and published by Engadget, shows that people are more likely to lie when texting.

The study consisted of  170 students that were brought in to conduct mock stock transactions as brokers and buyers. Four methods were used – face-to-face, text, video or audio – with each group playing different roles with defined rewards.

The study analyzed which method produced the most lies and found that buyers who used texts were much more likely to report deception, while video chatting was the least.
