New Media on Ulitzer
A recent study run by online business networking service www.MeettheBoss.com
shows that executives are spending an extra 11 hours a month online sharing
their professional experiences and learning from their peers.
The survey asked its executive users what direct value they gained from
spending time running blogs, writing tweets and connecting with other
executives on sites such as LinkedIn, Xing, MeettheBoss, Ryze, Facebook,
Ulitzer and Twitter.
The answers revealed that executives proficient with online activities are
spending an average of 11 hours more per month online than this time last

‘very valuable’ to their daily role.
Professionals are rushing to the Web for immediate answers to their most
pressing questions. “I find online business networking very useful,” says
