While most people, 80%, feel that they are more outgoing in the presence of people than they are in the shadows of their computers, two out of 10 feel they are more outgoing when they socialize online. With so many opportunities to “like,” “tweet” and “comment” and with so many places to blog, show the world your vacation photos and write about your pet peeves, it is not surprising to see a growing number of people feel they are more outgoing online than in person. And, the internet exposes us to so many more people with whom to communicate, that it does not take a leap of faith to see why some people feel that they are more outgoing online. Marketers, have you found the best interest groups to expose your ads to?

More data and full technical details are available in the Detailed Tables document on the right.
