Fortune 500 companies are increasingly using visual social networks such as Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat, according to recent research conducted by Nora Ganim Barnes and Shannen Pavao at The Center for Marketing Research, University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth.
The report was based on analysis of the social media accounts and blogs of companies on the 2017 Fortune 500 list. The researchers looked at channel usage at the corporate level, not the brand level (e.g., whether Apple, not iTunes, has an account).
LinkedIn is the most popular social network with Fortune 500 companies: 498 firms on the list (98%) have accounts on the platform.
Twitter is the second most popular platform (88% of firms have accounts), and Facebook is the third most popular (85%).
