The question is an 'also'.
Vote the poll with your prevered/favorite (or w/e) network.
The question is just to see which you trust more. Ofcourse if this differs from your poll vote, the next question calls:
Do you care about privacy and if so, are you planning on moving networks?

The only one I use is facebook despite the issues (which im not to familiar with) to do with them selling information and such. All my friends use Facebook and nothing more, so I'm going to stick with where my friends are.

I doubt I would be a target if anyone had my Facebook information anyways lol.

Main problem with facebook is people are stupid, put loads of information on their profile then set it to public. LOL

Google+ is a wasteland compared to Facebook... It's probably why it barely gets used in comparison.

That might change over time. TBH I really wonder what will happen.
ATM it is still in BETA and tbh I've never seen a BETA that was really close to the final version.
I must add that it has some interesting features like up to 9 people video/voice chat. (Now some of you might come to me and say SKYPE! but for more then 1 on 1, you have to pay Wink )

Also, from all of these I think I trust Google+ most. Though trust and the internet doesn't really go hand in hand all that well imo Neutral

I trust Facebook over Google+, because unlike Google+ if Facebook fucks up and people stop using them they'll just roll over and die.

Google still has its search engine, phone, web browser, os, etc to support them if they manage to make everyone hate their social network.

Trust? Who the fuck cares? Why does it matter? Don't put information up in a social network that you're not comfortable sharing in public. Assume that anything you put up will be public information, treat it accordingly.

Google+ being a "beta" is not an excuse for it sucking dick.

I only use Google+ as I'm one of the fortunate few that has more than three friends on it.

But why is Twitter on the list? It's more of a complement service to portals like Facebook or Google+. At least put LinkedIn on the list...

They require a phone number to confirm your account now, they could sell that. I don't care about any other information put on there, but I really don't need telemarketers calling me a couple years down the road because a company sold their data base or it was hacked.

Having two "none" responses is redundant if the question is asking which one you trust more.

As for which one to trust? None of them and all of them. I don't really use any but how exactly are you asking we "trust" them? By not giving away personal information? Because that's pretty much what people do on those sites of their own free will.. so :\

The question is an 'also' as it says in front of the question and I already said this before to VuLTiMa Wink
The poll is just to vote for your favorite or most used (I guess these go hand in hand but w/e Razz).

If someone doesn't want to give personal information to one, I'd say he/she doesn't trust that network with that information.
Because he/she apparently pays attention to this, he/she could give an opinion on which they (would) 'trust' more (more secure or private etc). With other words; if he/she would give out information, which network would he/she do that on over the others and why?

If that person did give information, he/she probably didn't think about what happens with that information, or maybe doesn't care.
In this case, the question probably can't be answered by that person, unless he/she did so because he/she trusts that network with that information. If so, I'd love to hear their statement/opinion as to why that specific network.

Nearly a year in, I retract this statement. Twitter is arguably the most important social network now.

Google+ is still bad.

Fuck ALL of the US government controlled worldwide spying institutions.

It's all part of the big illusion that we perpetuate on ourselves and in turn is perpetuated upon us. When we believe, we engage the illusion. When we stop believing we shatter the illusion and shatter ourselves in the process. Because we are, part of it.

Jerad actually made a rather good point, since Facebook IS essentially toast if it goes down while if G+ is a flop, Google's going nowhere. But then again, I use Android on my phone and Chrome on my computers so they already log all my search history, website history, and god knows how much they log on my phone.

The thing with Facebook selling information is like... well: they can make a shit pile of money off of selling information on people (Facebook arguably knows more about most people than they do themselves), so of course they're going to fucking do it!
