Only 18% of Top CEOs Are on Social Networks

Only 18 percent of the CEOs of the world’s 50 biggest companies by revenue have one or more social networking accounts, according to a study released Tuesday by global PR firm Weber Shandwick. By comparison, the firm conducted a similar study in 2010 and found that 16 percent of the top CEOs had at least one social networking account, suggesting that not much has changed in the past three years. Social networks like Facebook and Twitter may be gaining users at a quick pace, but at least one group continues to be hesitant about joining: CEOs.
