Californians trust tech, not social media

Californians say technology is the most trusted industry, but social media, a product of technology, is one of the least-trusted sectors, according to The 2018 Edelman Trust Barometer California Supplemental Survey.

Why it matters: Few California residents site social media companies when asked to name technology companies. Instead they list Apple, Google, Microsoft and Samsung (in that order) as the top four companies that come to mind.
