I heard that we tend to be kinder to stranger in social media. I believe it is true. When we are meeting strangers maybe in the street or while shopping we either already heard or seen them which is all we need to develop prejudgment due to our biases.

What do you think?

@murtezayesil It's easier to delete nasty things without posting them on social media.

@murtezayesil I’ve found the opposite - people will say the foulest, rudest things on social media but reconsider their words when they have to look a person in the face.

For all those who seem to think their internet persona is a mask, I refer them to the two quotes below:

"Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut."

- Ernest Hemingway
