My online self is a better version of myself, or rather who I want to be. It's nice from an egotistical standpoint to judge "likes" in terms of actual companionship. But, in the long run, you're setting yourself up to disappoint people. One of the biggest draws of starting college is having a new pool of people to meet and mingle with, thus expanding your social circle and forming close relationships with others. If your first interaction with somebody is through Facebook or on Twitter, you're showing off your good parts first, almost seducing the potential friend into a trap like a socially anxious spider, which isn't fair to them, poor helpless flies. This problem is especially prominent in online dating, the most social of all social media.
