This report, which documents the usage of social media tools by foundation executives based on survey responses from members of the Center's Grantmaker Leadership Panel, finds that about one-third of foundation CEOs surveyed regularly use Facebook or read blogs, and that only six percent use Twitter. It also analyzes the perceived usefulness of Web 2.0 in philanthropic work, and highlights the social media activity of two "power users" in the field.
