Despite mounting privacy concerns, Google has charmed the vast majority of Canadians.

91% of Canadians use Google, according to a poll conducted by Forum Research. The poll didn't specify a particular Google product, meaning most participants would be referring to the search engine but some could also be referring to the social network Google+.

According to the research, 73% of Canadians who use Google are "very satisfied" with it.

22% of Canadians use Twitter and 21% use LinkedIn, Forum says.
