Ponemon Institute surveyed more than 100,000 adult-aged consumers over a 15-week period ending in December 2012; of the 6,704 respondents, representing 25 different industries, Mozilla was ranked the top Internet and social media company. While this is a great achievement for Mozilla, especially considering this was their first year making the list, Mozilla's team took note of the fact that "Internet and social media" was still the least trustworthy sector out of the 25 total industries listed. “It means we as an industry all have a lot more work to do,” Mozilla wrote on its blog."
