Top 50 CIO and IT Leaders in Social Media

  1. 1. Top 50 CIO and IT Leaders in the Social Media - HorizonWatching 2/19/10 10:29 PM HorizonWatching Home Archives Profile Subscribe February 18, 2010 Top 50 CIO and IT Leaders in the Social Media Yesterday my post here was titled 2009 CIO Award Winners Are Not Embracing Social Media. In that post I provided the results of some research I did to understand if CIOs and IT Leaders who had received Industry related awards in 2009 were participating in the social media. I found that those award winners I did research on had not embraced the social media trend. Today, I provide the other end of the spectrum: The Top 50 CIO and IT Leaders in the Social Media. For this post, I set out to find those practicing CIOs, CTOs, and IT Leaders who have embraced the social media with passion. I scoured the Net to find CIO’s that are blogging and tweeting about issues and events that are important to CIOs and the IT industry in general. These are the CIOs that are actively creating and participating in discussions in the social media. They are sharing their experiences and ideas in the public Internet, instead of holding these experiences and ideas to themselves. In addition to the blogging and tweeting, I was also interested in finding CIOs that were actively building their LinkedIn profile and connecting with others through LinkedIn. I found about 65 CIOs during my research. I then developed a ranking system by scoring CIOs on a number of criteria, including the currency and frequency of their blog posts, the richness of their LinkedIn profile, and their participation on Twitter. A quick sort by the total score and I have a list of the top 50 as displayed below. Some stats from the list of 50. 80% of those on the list are blogging on a public website. 92% are actively using Twitter 96% have a LinkedIn profile 66% are on Facebook (note: Facebook usage did not enter into my scoring and ranking system) So here is the list of the top 50 CIO and IT Leaders I came up with. I’ve provided links to their Blogs, their Twitter IDs, and their LinkedIn Profiles. I encourage you to explore those links and learn from their posts and tweets. More importantly, I encourage you to participate in the discussions they are having by commenting on their blogs and responding to their tweets. Perhaps they will even inspire you to start blogging or tweeting your ideas and thoughts about the important issues facing CIOs today.

I agree. I was surprised to see Government and Healthcare on the list so much. I'd like to see more Manufacturing, Distribution/Retail, and Financial Services CIOs blogging and tweeting. Posted by: Bill Chamberlin | February 19, 2010 at 06:56 PM I am claiming the first CIO blog. I started my current blog, candidcio.com, in June 2003. Can anyone top that?
