Google, Microsoft Employees Are The Most Social, Report Says

Google and Microsoft are the #1 and #2 most social corporations, according to a new report by NetProspex, a social media sales and marketing contact database.

Tech companies dominated the list, but not exclusively. Other companies in the top 25 include Amazon.com, Best Buy, Apple, Williams-Sonoma, Gap, Electronic Arts, Pulte Homes, and Walt Disney, which has fallen to #25 from the #5 spot since the last time the report was done in May. Goldman Sachs was #50.

Most of the corporations on the list were either very large, consumer-facing brands like Target or were related to the high tech industry.
