Marc Benioff, the chairman and CEO of Salesforce.com, is fast catching up to Zappos’ CEO Tony Hsieh (who tweets under the handle @zappos) as a social media exemplar. Benioff updates his Facebook and Twitter presence often, and his updates are almost always substantive and interesting. He updates about technology, causes he cares about, and competitors. Oh, and he updates about Salesforce.com, which walks the social walk by building in and adding on (through acquisition) social capabilities to its platform at a dizzying pace.

re: How 6 Tech Execs Set Social Example
These are my comments concerning an earlier slide show in a related publication:
"A 'Slide Show' as your lead article?
And although we can comment on the article, this publication has no (that I can find - and I've been looking a lot) ' Letters to the Editor ' Link. This is terribly unfair to the author(s) who logically did not make the decision to run a carnival Slide Show in lieu of a professionally illustrated article.
PLEASE ?"
