According to a report, people are more likely to lie via text compared to face-to-face communications, video conferencing or audio chat.Researchers say texting lends itself to lying because those receiving the message can't notice visual cues, such as stuttering, or twisting your hands nervously, or darting your eyes -- all associated with lying. That report is coming out next year in the Journal of Business Ethics.
