Just a quick thought today on HR and social media use. I have run into a lot of HR people recently who have not dipped their toes into social media, other than perhaps LinkedIn. Most certainly are avoiding the use of Twitter. The problem with that is that employees are using Twitter and Facebook. If you want to know what they are doing you need to be aware and conversant with the tool. To me this is the same as trying to recruit for a sales position without having ever read the job description, without having ever talked to a sales rep or without having ever made a call with a rep. You just are not going to be very good in your job.
