The report was based on data from a survey of more than 2,000 consumers in the United States.
Respondents gave Facebook an average score of 4 as a trusted content source from brands (1=most trusted; 10=least trusted). Magazines and newspapers ranked second (4.4 average score), followed by email and television (5.3 average score each).
Younger generations are more likely to trust social channels than their older counterparts are: Some 29% of consumers age 18-22 and 32% of consumers age 23-30 rank Facebook as the most trusted content channel, whereas only 16% of consumers age 52-68 do so. Older consumers are more likely to trust traditional media, such as print (27%).
