Three Out of Four Americans Say Facebook Play Negative Role for U.S.
Three-quarters of Americans think Facebook is making U.S. society worse.
Nearly half polled say they know someone who was led to believe a conspiracy theory due to content on the social media platform, a CNN poll conducted by SSRS said Wednesday.
The belief that Facebook harms society, 76 per cent to 11 per cent, holds firm even among regular users, at 70 per cent to 14 per cent, although there is a bit of a split over whether the website itself is to blame for society’s ills.
Among those who think it is problem, 55 per cent say the cause is the way people use the platform.
But 45 per cent believe it is due to how Facebook is run.
Facebook is facing intense scrutiny from Congress over claims that the social media platform divides Americans and drives the spread of bogus information.
