To Judge or Not to Judge



I read an article{885560B4-7672-481C-AE84-9AFE18AF9F70}&siteid=rss  which made me want to respond t in a proactive way…so here it goes. In my opinion, as a recruiting industry we should start having such conversations on how to approach social networks in a responsible way. As humans, it is a natural reaction to pass judgments, but as professionals in roles such as human resource, recruiters/sourcers, and hiring managers, it...  Read More’s our job not to pass judgment based on ethnic background, age, religion, sex, etc. We have to remember that these are open social networks and that we should NOT be judging them based on the above info or even photos that might have been taken back in the college days. I strongly believe it is also a HUGE mistake not to use social networks as part of your sourcing strategies with stats like this, but strongly believe that we need to have constant conversations to welcome these tools which is becoming the way of communications.




Facebook 1st  


More than 68 million active users
An average of 250,000 new registrations per day since Jan. 2007
An average of 3% weekly growth since Jan. 2007

MySpace 2nd

MySpace the 2nd  largest Social Network in North America maintains a dominant position as media site, primarily aimed at youth, giving them the opportunity to relate to brands and bands, as well as self-express. This site will continue to do with advertisers and marketers. Expect to see more TV and video networks to integrate and work with MySpace, who has the new generation that Generation X was to MTV

MySpace has more than 58 million monthly active users around the globe

85% of MySpace users are of voting age (18 or older)

An average 300,000 new people sign up to MySpace every day

MySpace is one of the fastest growing websites of all time

3,000,000 - number of Tweets/day

86,078 - number of followers of the most active Twitter user

63% - percentage of Twitter users that are male



LinkedIn 5th

LinkedIn saw record traffic in September 2008 with 30.1M unique visitors, up more than 10% from August (10.8M) and a gain of 193% since last year.


Not All Social Network Users Alike – Four Types of LinkedIn Users – Which Type are you?


1.     “Savvy Networkers” (est. 9 million) are likely to have started using social networking earlier than others, are more tech savvy, and more likely to be active on other SNS sites like Facebook,Twitter, MySpace, etc.

Savvy Networkers have the most connections (61 on average) and are more likely than other segments to use LinkedIn for a wide variety of purposes other than job searching. Savvy Networkers have the second highest average personal income ($93,500) and may often have the word “Consultant” in their job description.

2.     “Senior Executives” (est. 8.4 million) are somewhat less tech savvy and is using LinkedIn to connect to their existing corporate networks. They have power jobs which they are quite content with, and are likely to have been invited by a colleague and then realized how many key contacts were on the site and started building connections (32 on average).  Senior Executives have the highest average personal income ($104,000) and have titles such as Owner, Partner, Executive, or Associate.

3.     “Late Adopters” (est. 6.6 million) are likely to have received numerous requests from friends and co-workers before deciding to join. They are somewhat less tech savvy and are careful in how they use LinkedIn, tending to connect only to close friends and colleagues and have the fewest number of connections (23 on average).  Late Adopters have the lowest average personal income ($88,000) and have titles such as Teacher, Medical Professional, Lawyer, or the word “Account” or “Assistant” in their job description.

4.     “Exploring Options” (est. 6.1 million) may be working, but are open and looking for other job options often on, perhaps in part because they have the lowest average personal income ($87,500). They are fairly tech savvy and use SNS for both corporate and personal interests.


I think it’s how we (recruiting) conducts ourselves on these incredible resources. I don’t know about you, but a good recruiting would know how to use these incredible resources and utilize them in a very pro-active creative ways. Please know I am only responding to the article that was shared and wanted to encourage people to have conversations around this. It is up to you how you do your job. Cheers

How to Protect Yourself on Social Networking Sites

When training others on the power of social networking, I am often asked about privacy and protecting oneself while on these sites. This is a great question as one’s social network grows at an accelerated rate. It is important to know that sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, and Twitter are watching any unusual activities, profiles and content. They remove any offenders right away. If something is reported they will conduct an investigation of that profile.

Have you done an Internet search on your name lately? Any public information about you is relatively easy for any researcher to find. By contrast, you have control over the information you share on Social Network sites. So relax and explore. I encourage you to have fun in this amazing new world. Share this with your kids, friends, and colleagues they may be using these sights, the more we share the knowledge, the more we have the power.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Step 1.

If you choose to sign up for an account on a social networking site you are exposing yourself to people. Your decision to sign up for the site (to reconnect with high school friends or to network with potential employers) may be a great one, but you have still exposed your life to anyone who wants to see. One option is to set your profile to private, which many sites allow you to do. By doing this, however, a person has to be your "friend" on the site in order for them to view your information. If you are networking and want people to find out about you, this may not be the best option.


Screen the people who request to be your friend. Do you know them? If not, why are they asking? Don't think you have to say yes to everyone because you want a lot of friends, that could lead to a lot of trouble. On some sites you are able to send a message to them without becoming friends, so do that first if you feel comfortable enough to...why do they want to be your friend? There is so much talk about children online and predators searching for them, but there are also the predators who may be searching for something else. It's never a bad idea to be cautious and thorough when accepting friend requests.


Don't put up a lot of personal stuff. It's fine to put up your relationship status and things of that sort, but including an address, phone number, occupation, even your name, is sometimes NOT a smart thing to do. This just makes it easier for those potential predators to track you down if they want to. Most social networking sites have an "About Me" section and that is where you usually say a little about yourself. Include the basics, maybe you have to say what you do for a living in order to network with people, but don't reveal too much.


Including photos of yourself is OK, professional ones are best, maybe a few with friends, but don't include racy photos of yourself, it just makes you more of a target then another person.


The final thing to do is make sure your account is secure. There are hackers that will break into account after account and steal personal things. If you notice that your account has been hacked, change passwords immediately.
