of Fortune 500 CEOs use Twitter. You know what this is right? Earlier this week, my pal Gini Dietrich (even though she has zero skills in Draw Something , we are still cool) wrote a post showcasing social media usage by CEOs in the Fortune 500. Unsurprisingly the usage in this group was quite low: 3.8% of these CEOs are on Facebook. of them are on LinkedIn – not surprising given their role in partnerships and recruiting.8% are on Google+ – Larry Page is the leader in the clubhouse1.2% contribute to blogs. are on Pinterest. Does social media play a role in this? You betcha! Hell no.
