Today I came across a document, which made me to think, what does CEO’s do in their free time. Yeah this might be a silly question to ask, but when you read the entire post you will be like .. yeahhhh !! anyways back to the topic, the recent survey by uberCEO revealed that most of the CEO’s don’t indulge in any of the social networking sites. some facts on based on the survey:

  • Only two CEOs have Twitter accounts.
  • 13 CEOs have LinkedIn profiles, and of those only three have more than 10 connections.
  • 81% of CEOs don’t have a personal Facebook page.
  • Three quarters of the CEOs have some kind of Wikipedia entry, but nearly a third of those have limited or outdated information.
  • Not one Fortune 100 CEO has a blog.

So now you guys put on the thinking hat and tell me, what these guys do. May be they don’t have any free time ? Some more top line results

Twitter was the least used service by Fortune 100 CEOs, despite being one of the fastest growing social media networks. Wikipedia had the highest level of engagement among the Fortune 100 CEOs, yet 28% of those entries had incorrect titles, missing information or lacked sources.

LinkedIn, a site mainly used for professional networking, only attracted 13 Fortune 100 CEOs, five of which had just one connection. Three CEOs stood out from the pack on LinkedIn, each having more than 80 connections. However, they are all from technology companies – Michael Dell (Dell), Gregory Spierkel (Ingram Micro) and John Chambers (Cisco).

While there were slightly more Fortune 100 CEO users on Facebook than on LinkedIn, most of them had limited information on their page and few friends. More surprising is that no Fortune 100 CEO has a public blog that could be easily found.

Dont you think, CEO should’nt be disconnected from these social media’s, where there are lots of marketing happens? This is one of the ways to get in touch with customers and prospective customers, there are more opportunities to build the brand. Again, there is a problem here, if all the CEO’s of top 100 companies starts to tweet and update their status in facebook, write blogs all the day, then when do they give importance to other aspect of their business ? isnt it ? Anyways, your welcome to post your views..
