New Study Finds Varying Success Among Internet-Based Customer Experiences

By Luke Bellos August 06, 2021

The American Customer Satisfaction Index (ASCI) revealed the results of the organization’s annual e-business ranking report, which analyzes the customer satisfaction success of three specific online business categories: social media, search engines/information, and news/opinion.

ACSCI compiled data from 5,544 randomly selected customers, who offered their opinions on a number of specific areas related to their overall experience with the selected brands. Customers were asked to provide feedback on a number of specific elements of the user experience. Some examples of categories include: quality of mobile app,ease of navigation, speed/reliability, and privacy.

This year’s report found some rather surprising results from some of the most widely used sites, demonstrating that users are becoming more critical of how responsive brands are to ensuring quality across all spectrums. Some of the highest rated brands included Pinterest (78/100), Youtube(76/100), and Google(76/100), with Pinterest gaining an additional percentage point from the last assessment.

Other notable brands experienced a slight decrease in customer experience satisfaction, with Instagram, Facebook(73, Snapchat(70/100) and Wikipedia(73/100) slipping nearly 3%. One of the most shocking discoveries of the report was that Twitter, one of the most popular social media sites being used today, dropped 10%, cementing itself in last place with the most significant drop.
