CNBC Survey Respondents Trash Facebook

By David Cohen 

GreySuitThumbsDown650Respondents to a recent survey conducted by SurveyMonkey on behalf of CNBC were not kind to Facebook.

According to CNBC:

  • 45 percent of respondents said Facebook was the technology company that most concerned them in terms of privacy and collection of personal data. Google and Apple were next, at 21 percent and 6.6 percent, respectively, while 13 percent of respondents had no privacy concerns.
  • Facebook was viewed as the most likely tech company to have a corporate scandal, at 35 percent, followed by Apple (14 percent) and Twitter (10 percent).
  • 23 percent of respondents believe Facebook is the most likely tech company to be obsolete in 10 years, followed by Twitter, at 15 percent.
  • However, Facebook was also voted as the most likely social network to be dominant in 10 years, at 23 percent, well ahead of Twitter, LinkedIn and Snapchat.
  • Most surprising, all of the social networks mentioned above might want to watch their backs, as 53 percent of respondents said the most dominant social network in 10 years will be “a new company that doesn’t yet exist.”

On a side note, SurveyMonkey CEO Dave Goldberg is married to Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg.
