How do you feel about the social media? Your perspective may demand on how much time you send on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, but an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows many of us have negative views toward social media brands like Facebook and Twitter with sizeable majority saying these sites do more to divide the country than unite it. They also spread falsehoods rather than news. The poll showed 6 in 10 Americans don’t trust Facebook at all to protect their personal information. There were two polling firms, one described tied to Republicans and one described tied to Democrats.

The monthly farmers sentiment index from Purdue University/CME Group declined three points. This monthly survey showed 21% of farmers expect their financial performance to be better in 2019 than in 2018. This covers all types of producers.
