When I looked at the new stats feature I saw 100% of the traffic to them was from Google. When I mentioned this to a colleague she whipped out her iPhone, went onto Google, typed in

The World's Top CEOs Are Tweeting More, Facebooking Less

The World's Top CEOs Are Tweeting More, Facebooking Less | All About LinkedIn | Scoop.it
Twitter's on the rise, but LinkedIn is the most popular social network for CEOs.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 18, 9:40 AM

(From the article)What’s also a little surprising is that just 28 percent of these CEOs have a public social media account at all, regardless of platform. That number is up — it was just 18 percent in 2012 — but it still seems pretty low considering how widespread social media has become over the past few years.

 

The study also found that more CEOs are participating in company videos, a nod to the importance of video as a marketing strategy for companies. (As we’ve written here many times, consumer video is on the rise, especially on Facebook.) More than half of these CEOs appeared in videos on their company website or YouTube last year, up from 40 percent in 2012 and just 18 percent in 2010.
