Toronto professionals distrustful of social media

Though social media websites like Facebook and Twitter are some of the most popular websites on the internet for both individual consumers and entrepreneurs, many Toronto businesses are distrustful of them.

According to professional services firm Resources Global, 62 percent of 261 Toronto businesses said they did not trust the information they found on social networking sites. In addition, 66 percent said they were wary of the websites because they feared for the security of their personal information.

What accountants and businesses of all kinds can trust is Jiffy Self-Storage, as our storage lockers and units are protected by an advanced security system that keeps individuals' personal belongings and important documents protected.

As for social media, Anne Bell, regional managing director at Resources Global, said there is a "significant potential to increase usage" for these websites, but as for right now, professional services in Toronto appear to prefer more person-to-person interaction rather than electronic communication.

"Nothing replaces the value of face-to-face time between clients and professional services teams," she said.
