A Zogby Interactive survey of 2,100 U.S. adults conducted June 9 – 11 found that while 49% trust Apple, Microsoft and Google, only 8% trust Twitter, and 13% trust  Facebook.  Twitter tied with traditional media, which is also trusted by only 8% of U.S. adults.

The percentage of respondents who trust the social media sites was a little higher among young adults:   among the poll’s 18-29s, 20% said they trust Facebook completely/a lot, and 15% said they trust Twitter.
