CIO Receives Highest Recognition in ‘Best Social Community BtoB’ Category
IDG’s CIO, the executive-level IT media brand providing insight into business technology leadership, was recognized by digiday’s Social Advertising, Media and Marketing (SAMMY) Awards for its CIO Forum on LinkedIn during an awards ceremony on Tuesday evening. The CIO Forum, facilitated by CIO.com/CIO magazine, is where members of the CIO community connect and collaborate to move their business technology initiatives and careers forward.
Launched in January 2008, the Forum has quickly grown to one of the largest IT-focused communities on LinkedIn with more than 37,000 IT executive-level members. Members are hand-vetted to be practicing IT professionals, with recruiters, consultants, and sales and marketing titles excluded from membership. As a vendor-free community, members feel free to speak openly about successes and challenges regarding their roles and careers.
