This new study compares organizational adoption of social media in 2007, 2008, and 2009 by the 200 largest charities in the United States, based on a list compiled annually by Forbes. This research shows that charitable organizations are still outpacing the business world and academia in their use of social media. The previous study revealed that a remarkable 97 percent of charitable organizations are using some form of social media including blogs, podcasts, message boards, social networking, video blogging, wikis, and Twitter.
