It's lonely at the top, as you may have heard. But we didn't realize it was this lonely. According to BusinessWeek, a big bunch of CEOs have joined social networking sites like LinkedIn and Facebook, but most of them have very few friends to speak of:
There are about 19 CEOs on Facebook but most don't have very many friends. Kenneth Lewis at Bank of America has 13 friends, John Strumpf at Wells Fargo has 12 friends and Vikram Pandit at Citigroup has only 8 friends. A handful only have one friend each and Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon Mobil, doesn't have any Facebook friends.
Could Vikram Pandit be so unpopular that he'd only have eight friends? Couldn't he, like, send out a memo to Citigroup employees with Facebook accounts to rectify this situation? Maybe the issue is that the Vikram Pandit on Facebook they're referring to isn't the real Vikram. We don't know for sure, but we're going to guess that the real McCoy would have figured out by now that "Citi" and "Group" aren't two separate words. Even one as dimwitted as Vikram Pandit.
