Social Media is Your Footprint in Cyberspace
As is every job candidate you come across…
Hiring a new employee is akin to inviting a new member into your office family.
As such, you want to be sure that this new addition will not only be able to bring needed skills to the table, but will fit into the existing office culture.
It can be argued that personality and personal ethics are at least as important as proficiency when assessing the qualities of an ideal candidate.

Social Media and Computers Are Only Our Tools
Your skills and talents are only 30% of your job — 70% of your job should be building relationships
In the ’60s and ’70s, social analysts worried that the future would be a dark, dismal place, in which humanity faded under the shadow of cold, impersonal technology.
And like anything else we tend to worry about, those professionals — nor us — need not have worried.
We humans are hardwired to crave contact with others of our kind, even in a digital world.
Our work environment is no exception — many countries, especially the U.S., now have more people working from home than ever before.
Look around you and most likely more than a few people will be reading something off of their smartphone, iPad, iPhone, or sitting down with a laptop.
Everyone is connecting through a machine — and yet many are craving contact with others.

Social Media Is No Longer a Fad – If Anything It Is a Microscope
Microscopic views of your life on social meida are leaving lasting impressions about your life
Every business should have a Facebook profile; Facebook accounts are a great way to boost the brand recognition of a business.
However, if incorrect or less than strategic posting methods are used, Facebook can definitely hurt a business’s reputation.
Forever and Always?
Because Facebook is a social media networking site, many people, including business professionals, seem to forget that what is posted at the site is visible for all to see.
Perhaps even more importantly, what is posted online does not go away – sometimes it is there forever – it’s infinite.
Even individuals have to be careful about the things they post on Facebook.
But it is extremely important for businesses to keep in mind that every posting is a reflection on the business.
Adding an inappropriate image or comment could potentially damage the company’s online reputation
