It is in its infancy. I blog, I tweet. We use Facebook for office culture. We do friday facts, and the company twitter promotes. This survey is like a list of all my unfinished tasks. It is a little depressing.... joking, but much truth here.

It does, but it is dormant. I have a Facebook page that still needs to be developed, I'm on LinkedIn, but don't spend much time there, and I only use Twitter to consume content.

We tweet our blog posts each week. We try to tweet an interesting blog/article each day and team contribute to team twitter account. I network and sell through Linkedin. Not exactly what you'd call a 'strategy' though.
