Did you know that 79 percent of Inc 500 CEOs and 30 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs have an active presence on at least one social network?

Twitter leads the way, commanding a healthy 50.3 percent share amongst chief execs, ahead of LinkedIn (47 percent) and Facebook (45 percent), with Google+, as usual, taking home the wooden spoon (12.1 percent).

Four out of five employees (81 percent) believe that CEOs who engage on social media are better equipped to lead companies in the modern world, and 82 percent of customers are more likely to trust a company whose CEO and leadership team are active on these channels.
