  • More Americans trust the news media than last year (including Republicans)
  • The Associated Press is going to track IP violations with blockchain technology

  • Forty percent of U.S. employees think they’re underpaid; most are still happy with their jobs
  • Facebook is the top social network for every demographic except teens
