The scope of the internet is mind-boggling. These days, there is more information available to you on your Smartphone than there is the world’s largest libraries.

But is this information you can so easily access from the web reliable?

According to a new Harris Interactive poll, the answer is a resounding no. Ninety-eight percent of the 1,900 adults surveyed answered that they distrust information on the internet.

Furthermore, 94 percent believe “bad things” can happen as a result of acting on inaccurate web info.

When asked why they are so skeptical of the internet, the respondents pointed to “too many ads” (59 percent)  ”outdated information” (56 percent) “information is self-promotional” (53 percent) and “unfamiliar forums (45 percent).
