Social media is a wonderful thing that has given everyone a platform to share, express and socialise in ways hitherto not imagined. But have you ever finally met someone you have been interacting with on social media only to find out that they are not as funny, aggressive, or even intelligent as they had seemed to you on social media?

She is funny to boot on Facebook, but dry and almost unbearable in person.
He is an introvert in flesh and blood, but very expressive on social media.
She is the world’s most beautiful woman on Instagram, but in person – with the pancake and filters stripped off – ughhhhh!
Welcome to the glorious new world of dual personalities.
