A landmark new survey reveals Australians trust the ABC and distrust Facebook the most.
Conducted in May by Roy Morgan, the MEDIA Net Trust Survey shows half of Australians don’t trust social media.
Despite this, Australia's love affair with social media continues - with around 8 in 10 Aussies using some form of social media.
The study also found ABC is by far the nation’s most trusted media organisation while SBS was named Australia’s most trust TV channel.
This comes just weeks after it was revealed the Liberal Party’s peak council voted almost 2:1 to privatise the ABC, an idea that was quickly shut down.
