Very few internet users self-regulate themselves. This is why it is easier for people to lie on the internet. Below are a list of things you and your peers must have lied about on the internet.
Biographical information is a holistic description of yourself. It includes your name, where you reside, language and other basic information. Perhaps, we don’t want to waste time when filling out forms or signing up on social media, we simply enter incorrect information including a fake email.
Some persons lie about what they are interested in. They want to paint a positive picture of themselves online, so they prefer to lie about their interest.

10. Afrikaner Broederbond
Afrikaner Brotherhood is a secret society that was popularized during the apartheid regime in South Africa. The group is aimed at maintaining and upholding the interest of the Afrikaans in South Africa. Their motto was “Wees Sterk” which meant “Be Strong”.
From 1948-1994, The Afrikaner brothers have become the most powerful group in South African politics and government. It is a fact that all the leaders of the country at that time in history were all members of this secret group. This substantiates the Calvinist view that they have been “planted in South Africa by the God” in order to run the affairs of the country and particularly deliver them from apathy.
The Afrikaner Brotherhood, whose motivation were based on the concept of predestination, largely influenced the socio-political lives of South Africans. The internal membership activities and requirements aside being an Afrikaan and up to the age of 25, remains a secret. Potential and qualified candidates are secretly invited. The emergence of this group can also be linked to the Boer War in South Africa.

10. Andrei Chikatilo – Born October 16, 1936 in Ukraine Andrei was a school teacher. He murdered 56 people of which he confessed to and was found guilty in 1990, he was later executed in 1994.
Andrei went to train stations, became friendly with young people, lured them into a nearby forest where he would attempt rape, afflict them and then kill them. He ate their sexual organs in some cases and took of their eyeballs in a belief that they would not have an image of his face even after death.
“Having been declared sane and fit to stand trial, Chikatilo went to court on April 14, 1992, and throughout the trial he was held in an iron cage designed to keep him apart from the relatives of his many victims. Referred to in the media as “The Maniac”, his behavior in court ranged from bored to manic, singing and talking gibberish; at one point he was even reported as having dropped his trousers, waving his genitals at the assembled crowd.
The judge appeared less than impartial, often overruling Chikatilo’s defense lawyer, and it was clear that Chikatilo’s guilt was a foregone conclusion. The trial lasted until August and, surprisingly, given the judge’s bias, the verdict was not announced until two months later, on October 15, 1990, when Chikatilo was found guilty on 52 of the 53 murder charges, and sentenced to death for each of the murders.”
