Research shows the use of social media at Fortune 500 has stalled, or perhaps even re-trenched.
This article for 'Grow' presents Data provided by the Center for Marketing Research at the University of Massachusetts.
What particularly caught my attention is:
***The almost universal uptake of Social Media by Universities and Charities.
***The divergence in uptake between Fortune 500 companies - the "titans" of American Business, and the INC 500, comprising America's fastest growing companies
A perhaps even more interesting divergence among the Fortune 500 where:
***The top 100 companies are the most active blogging companies.
***Only 17% of the next 400 companies blog.
It would be easy to conject as to the reasons for these stark differences, but I choose to let the numbers speak for themselves. I will, however, be on the lookout for further pieces and more in-depth Data on this intriguing puzzle.

Aaron Biebert wrote this timely and very helpful piece on his blog 8pmWarrior about all the new changes on Youtube.
YouTube announced changes to channels that feature a news feed integrated with Google+, Twitter, and Facebook for videos shared on other platforms.
Here's an intro:
"I’m sharing from experience as a producer of several online shows and video productions that were created to build community and sell a product in a social savvy way".
Video changes the game.
Here’s why YouTube matters:
**YouTube is the #2 search engine in the world (think SEO)It is the largest video-based social network
**Google+ is now integrated even closer with YouTube for additional community building (more on the way)
**YouTube is simple to use and even offers a free video editing feature Video is perfect for the Attention Era
Lots of valuable "how-to" information here.
