POLL: Google More Popular Than Apple, Facebook

The Washington Post and ABC News conducted a poll for the second consecutive year to find out which of three tech giants — Google, Apple, and Facebook — was the most liked, and the companies finished in the same order: Google at 83 percent, Apple at 72 percent, and Facebook at 60 percent.

Last year, the totals were 82 percent, 74 percent, and 58 percent, respectively, the Post reported.

According to the Post, Facebook performed strongly among respondents aged 18 through 29, with favorable ratings outnumbering unfavorable ratings by a 3-to-1 margin. The split among senior citizens was roughly even for the social network, meanwhile.

The survey was conducted May 29 through June 2, with a random national sample of 1,007 adults responding.
