Though Facebook is the dominant social media platform, consumer satisfaction with the industry giant is low—with users citing concerns over privacy, security, technology, and advertising—whereas satisfaction with nonprofit Wikipedia is more favorable, according to a survey from ForeSee Results for the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI).
Wikipedia also generates consumer activity: 10% of Wikipedia users have purchased products of services that were recommended on the website—an impressive number for a site that actively polices and prevents blatant marketing efforts.
