A new survey from Pew finds that a huge majority of Americans are now extremely wary of government spying, with 80% saying they are concerned about the NSA actively monitoring their communications.

The poll found that the large majority either agreed or strongly agreed with the statement that “Americans should be concerned about the government’s monitoring of phone calls and Internet communications.”

In the survey of over 600 people, more than 43% said that they knew “a lot” about “the government collecting information about telephone calls, emails, and other online communications as part of efforts to monitor terrorist activity,” While a further 44% said that they had heard at least something about it.More Americans than ever are aware that their government has been and still is spying on them.

Respondents were most concerned about government monitoring their social media activities. Over 70% of social media users said they were at least somewhat concerned about the NSA having access to the social media content, while 37% said they were “very concerned” about this facet of government spying.
