Facebook Users Are More Trusting

In 2011, the Pew Research Center found that, when accounting for all other factors—such as age, education level, and race—Facebook users are 43% more likely than other Internet users to say that “most people can be trusted” (see Figure 1.3). That’s actually up from 32% in 2009. Compared with people who don’t use the Internet at all, Facebook users were three times more trusting.25 By the way, who’s not using the Internet at all?
