NEW YORK — A new Kantar Media study has found that 50% of consumers say they trust brand information found on the internet, but 58% believe that when the message is seen as coming from the brand (regardless of the communication channel used) then it counts as advertising. In addition, 44% of consumers say their opinions of brands are influenced by what they read about them online, while 39% are influenced by online comments and reviews.

The internet and websites were the top source of brand information, according to 72% of respondents, followed by family and friends (53%), review sites (44%) and social media (42%). However, 78% of the 5,000 adults surveyed stated that friends and family were their most trusted source, followed by review sites (70%), while advertising scored lowest regarding trust.
