Ding Ding Ding, Survey Says – Google Is More Popular Than Facebook, Apple And Twitter As A Tech Brand

These are the days when a giant company who’s bread and butter is “search” has enough backing in both monetary and production as a brand to become more popular than tech companies like Apple and social media giants like Facebook and Twitter.  It’s anyone’s game these days and it certainly seems like a cutthroat business to stay one step ahead of the competition.  But Google, a company most noted for reinventing the wheel and actually making it better takes the polls.  In a survey conducted by ABC News and the Washington Post, staggering results revealed that Google beat out Facebook, Apple and the Big Tweet for most popular tech brand.  The results show that 82% of Americans held a good and favorable opinion of the search giant with 53% of them holding “strongly” favorable opinions.  There were only 9% of individuals who held an unfavorable opinion about the company.  Apple came in at a close second with 74% of which 13% had an unfavorable view of the fruity company and only 37% expressed a “strongly” favorable word.  Facebook came in at 58% and Twitter came in at a low 34% for favorable opinions.  FB had a whopping 28% rating for unfavorable opinions and Twitter had 36% in the unfavorable dept.  The survey ran from March 28th through the 1st of April and 1,007 adults took part in the study.  What would you’re numbers look like if you were given the opportunity to rate these companies?

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    The first sentence makes no sense. You use an adjective (monetary) as a noun. In the first sentence, it should be whose, not who’s, and in the last sentence it should be your, not you’re. Whose is possessive, while who’s is a contraction of who is or who has. Also, your is possessive, while you’re is a contraction of you are. You call yourself a writer?
