More than 70% of Americans believe technology has had a positive or somewhat positive effect on society, according to an Axios/ SurveyMonkey poll, and most Americans are optimistic about the impact of technology on the future. But that doesn't mean they trust tech companies — 78% thought it was a "bad thing" that tech companies are able to collect so much information about their users.
