All of the major PR agencies continue to move aggressively in regards to social media offerings for their clients. But how active are agency CEOs in social media?

PRNewser decided to take a look at major agency CEOs to see just how “social” they are. We’re not saying these CEO’s have to “walk the walk,” but we were a bit curious to see who is active, and where.

After the jump, our social media audit on 12 agency CEOs. The results may surprise you.
