Google Loved More Than Apple, Facebook, Twitter in U.S. [Poll]

Google is the most popular tech company in the U.S., with 82 percent of Americans having a favorable opinion and 53 percent indicating a “strongly” favorable opinion of the company, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.

Google's Love & Trust

Only 9 percent of respondents viewed Google unfavorably, while 10 percent had no opinion (though this number climbed to 29 percent among seniors). Google was most popular among the young (92 percent favorability), college graduates (88 percent), and more affluent (66 percent) respondents.
Larry Page’s 2012 Update from the CEO offered a positive future outlook as he enters his second year leading Google, in which Page devoted an entire section to love and trust.
“We have always wanted Google to be a company that is deserving of great love,” Page wrote. “But we recognize this is an ambitious goal because most large companies are not well-loved, or even seemingly set up with that in mind. We’re lucky to have a very direct relationship with our users, which creates a strong incentive for us to do the right thing.”
There was a lot of noise of late from certain newspapers, especially the Washington Post, blasting the new Google privacy policy. Microsoft, U.S. Attorneys General, and European regulators have also voiced concerns about the updated policy.
