    It’s interesting that LinkedIn does not appear as part of this study. Do you think it was left out intentionally, implying that LinkedIn is not an important part of the Fortune 500 social media fabric ?

    It wasn’t a bad article until you stumbled badly at the end. As a baby boomer, I would maintain that the baby boomer generation is most certainly flexible and adaptive. After all, most of the changes that you credit to the “Gen Y upstarts” happened while we’re still around and are now actively using those tools. Organizational size is usually an indicator of how quickly that organization can or is willing to adapt. Witness the exodus at Google (most certainly not headed up by baby boomer executives) by those looking for an organization that is smaller and more nimble. Organizational adaptability and age are not the same thing.

      Thanks David for the comment.. I actually am a baby boomer and I agree it’s not about age but attitude :)

        Dear Jeff, agree. It is about attitude. I am also interested to know the statistics about linkedin.

    Jeff- Great article. Thanks for sharing. I will post to my LinkedIn Group(The Business of Social Media) and Twitter if you dont mind.
    I’ve been following the F500′s social media presence with great interest. We’re on the cusp of a SM revolution in business today, a year from now, it will be mainstream. I also predict that SM will find a way to profit from big business.
    Enjoyed the read, keep up your great work.

    @Fwkeith3 My question too! If LinkedIn was a part of the survey, can we have those stats as well?

    We all celebrate Web 2.0. This application refers to the second generation of the Web. It lets people with no specialized technical knowledge create their own web sites, self-publish, make and upload audio and video files, share photos and information and so on.  They are meant to be accessible to non-technical users.  That is their beauty. It’s also how social media pirates take advantage of their clients.  They exploit these applications, which anyone can learn how to use, and present them as a their skills and know-how package.  Worse, they apply them without first creating a social media marketing strategy.  That’s how your tea cozy content winds up in the Web equivalent of Dry Gulch Nowhere.

    If the whole thing is successful, you will get an approval from the agency’s website confirming that your registration went through without a hitch.
