London: Britons show true emotions while online, concludes a new survey.

Around 20 percent of the survey’s participants revealed that they were more likely to be honest about their wellbeing when asked "How are you?" while using a social networking site or e-mail.

The study for healthcare company Bupa polled 2,224 adults via YouGov in March as part of its "How are you Britain?" report, reports a news daily.

Bupa Health and Wellbeing medical director Katrina Herren said, "Sharing an emotion with people who listen and don`t judge it to be good or bad can not only make you feel better but improve communication between you and others and maintain your mental wellbeing."
