Social Media is a powerful tool, if you use it in the right way. I must admit, when plarforms like Facebook and Twitter first came I only used it for private reasons. Posting pictures, updating my status about five times a day and sharing way to much personal information. It wasn’t until I learned more about this tool that I actually got ver interested in it.

I cam across an article on Forbes today as well, which is my main reason for blogging about this specific topic. You can read the article yourself but here are som great reasons why social media is a crucial recruiting tool:
