SILICON SLOPES, UT--(Marketwire - December 11, 2012) - CEOs at Inc. 500 companies are significantly more active on social media channels than their FORTUNE 500© counterparts, according to a new study conducted by Domo and CEO.com, an online resource that lets busy executives stay up to date on the latest news and best practices in business management.

All told, 79 percent of Inc. 500 CEOs have a social presence on at least one network. By comparison, 30 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs have a social media presence.
However, in terms of Klout scores, which measure the influence of individuals based on various social media data points, CEOs at the largest companies rank 28.5 percent higher than their fast-growth counterparts. Similarly, Fortune 500 CEOs who are on Twitter have more than 4 times the number of followers than Inc. 500 CEOs. These findings suggest that CEOs of America's largest companies still have enormous power in the social world, but are not doing enough to take advantage of their position.
"We already assumed CEOs at small, fast-growth companies put more stock in social media than CEOs of large multinational corporations -- what we didn't know was how overwhelming the difference would be," said Josh James, founder and CEO of Domo. "CEOs at large corporations are missing out on a tremendous opportunity. In today's hyper-connected world, CEOs who embrace social media will be the ones who create the most value for their organizations and lead their companies to even greater heights. In that respect, the future looks brightest for the CEOs of the Inc. 500."
