Corporate Blogs In The Fortune 500

This is a list of corporate blogs run by Fortune 500 companies. According to research, 88 (17.6%) of the Fortune 500 are blogging as of 01/04/2012.

The table below lists any Fortune 500 companies with blogs, links to one or two blogs owned by the company, and a link to reviews of those blogs. I'm also keeping a list of updates to the table post.

I also list the blogging software used by the blog and where the blog is located: subfolder, subdomain or separate domain.

A corporate blog is defined as: Active public blogs by company employees about the company and/or its products.
