It's often easy to dismiss social media as a shallow source of information, a mindless procrastination outlet, or a void of pictures and news related to people you barely know.

While Facebook, Twitter and countless other social channels can fall into any of these categories, it's important to recognize the value of social media in sharing and learning new ideas and useful information.

CIOs drive the adoption of new technologies across the enterprise, and the nature of their role involves communicating their thoughts and ideas to teach and motivate. IT pros of all levels can learn from these leaders simply by following their social media accounts.

Social is a Business Imperative
Social is a Business Imperative
The use of social media for a host of business purposes is rising. Indeed, social is quickly moving from cutting edge to business basic.
