... Twitter seems to be the social-media darling not just with mainstream media, but with the world's largest companies as well. According to the study, 54% of the Fortune 100 companies surveyed are active on Twitter. Another interesting stat is that 21 of the Fortune 100 companies use only Twitter or Facebook Pages or have a company blog. Of that 21%, 76% of those companies that only use one channel, use Twitter. Given that the tool can be picked up quickly, and is especially useful as a customer-service management tool for larger companies, these figures shouldn't be a big surprise.

The survey found that six in 10 (60 percent) business executives believe they have a right to know how employees portray themselves and their organizations in online social networks.
And it found that workers disagree -- with 53 percent saying their social-networking pages are not an employer's concern. This mind-set is especially prevalent among younger workers, with nearly two-thirds (63 percent) of 18 to 34 year olds stating employers have no business monitoring their online activity.

“I think it’s linked to how people in different parts of the world develop their identity and develop their approach to collaborate with other people,” said Jonathan Winter, founder of Career Innovation. “So in parts of Asia, for example, the motivation for self expression is stronger than we see in established economies.”
On the other hand, students in established economies — including the United States, Western Europe and Australia — appear not to use technologies such as podcasting and mobile e-mail extensively.

The share of adult internet users who have a profile on an online social network site has more than quadrupled in the past four years -- from 8% in 2005 to 35% now, according to the Pew Internet & American Life Project's December 2008 tracking survey.
Most, but not all adult social network users are privacy conscious; 60% of adult social network users restrict access to their profiles so that only their friends can see it, and 58% of adult social network users restrict access to certain content within their profile.
