Abstract:

This study explores constraints to deception in social networking websites (SNS). We argue that because specific features of SNS, such as the ability for individuals in the social network to view profile information, connect the real-world and online self (Walther & Parks, 2002) the costliness of deception is increased (Donath, 1999). We tested this prediction in the context of online resumes constructed on Linkedin.com®. Participants (N = 123) in a between-subjects experiment created profiles in three self-presentational settings: a traditional (offline) resume, a private SNS profile and a public SNS profile. Findings suggest that deception did not differ in frequency between SNS profile conditions, although self-presentational conditions affected job-related types of deception that people use in resumes. Individuals tended to lie more about interests in public SNS than in private SNS and traditional resumes, in contrast people tend to lie less about responsibilities in public SNS than in private SNS and traditional resumes. The results are discussed in terms of warranting and the costliness of deception (Donath, 1999).
