Every recruiter evangelist and solutions vendor out there today is banging his drum telling corporations why they need to be on and develop a recruiting strategy for Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and mobile. All I can say is of course! You dont’ need to be one of these evangelist to figure that out.

There will always be a new fad in technology and of course if the traffic is there we should be looking to leverage it for our talent acquisition strategy based on our budgets and priorities but remember to always treat the candidate/customer to the best experience they can have. Your shareholders and future employees will thank you for it no matter what site or medium your recruitment strategy is using.
