The top healthcare positions are Registered Nurse, Doctor, Healthcare Specialist, Licensed Practical Nurse, and Patient Care Technician, then Psychologist, Medical Assistant, Emergency Room Nurse, Certified Nursing Assistant, and Nursing Manager.

Most Trusted: LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram

LinkedIn remains the most trusted social platform for three years straight, ahead of Pinterest and Instagram.

According to the third annual Digital Trust Report from Business Insider Intelligence, this ranking was the result of an online survey of almost 2,000 respondents from April to May 2019.

The Digital Trust Report 2019 in particular ranks popular social media platforms with consumer trust metrics. According to BI, the ranking covers six pillars of digital trust: Security, Legitimacy, Community, User Experience, Shareability, and Relevance.

Digital trust is the confidence people have that a social platform will protect their information and provide a safe environment for them to create and engage with content.

Social media users are therefore more receptive to ads and sponsored content on platforms that have high digital trust.
