More and more people are turning to social media to obtain their daily news fix, but fewer than half trust platforms such as Facebook and Twitter as a source of this news, reveals a new study.
A November 2014 poll by Edelman found that just 48 percent of respondents trusted social media sites for news and information, compared to 64 percent who trust online search engines, which finished first in the survey.
Social placed fourth overall, behind traditional media (62 percent) and hybrid media (53 percent).
Owned media (47 percent) finished last.
