In stumbling through the Twittersphere recently, I came across the link to the Fortune 500 Business Blogging Wiki.
The Wiki, which covers Fortune 500 business blogs defined as “active public blogs by company employees about the company and/or its products,” was originally created by Chris Anderson of Wired and is now maintained by John Cass. It’s a great resource to see what social media efforts these top conglomerates are taking (although not too many of them).
However, according to Debbie Weil the 13 percent, is a 5 percent increase from 2005. A number that will only increase as the years go by.
Update: Through some comments generated by this post and a follow-up conversation with John Cass, he’s recalculated that the percentage of current Fortune 500 companies blogging has dropped from 13.4% to 12%.
