      Notes: 3 in 4 American adults claim to be very or somewhat concerned about having too much personal information about them online. The majority of respondents have little to no trust in social media sites, and 6 in 10 believe it likely than social networks sell their contact information. About two-thirds are concerned that social networks sell their personal data; similar proportions are concerned that websites (70%), online service providers (63%) and apps (67%) sell their information.
