In an April survey of just under 2,000 US adults the Pew Internet & American Life Project asked about problems and frustrations with mobile phone service and experiences. The problems explored in the survey included dropped calls, telemarketing, SMS spam and slow downloads.
Findings from a recent Pew Project about search engine use. Rather than a straight yes/no option, the choices gave some context on personalized search:
- 73% overall said they were “Not OK” with personalized search, since they felt it was an invasion of their privacy
- 83% of those 50+ viewed it as a privacy invasion
- 69% of those 18-29 viewed it as as an invasion
- 68% of those 30-49 viewed it as an invasion
