The latest thinking, news and events from the world of Recruitment

The Rise of Facebook Recruitment


Just like the rise of social media, the recruitment industry has also evolved from platform to platform. One of the latest discussions online is the relevance and the use of Facebook’s Graph Search as a recruitment tool. This article will take a look at Facebook’s users, Facebook as an alternative to LinkedIn and some statistics explaining the phenomenon.

Look at the statistics

“It’s easy to make fun of Facebook. The depressed stock, the misguided political comments, the unguarded vanity of high school “friends”—all tend to reinforce the inanity of the social network. But a billion people still use it. Even those who complain (like me) still use it. And for large, multinational companies, it’s becoming an increasingly valuable tool for recruiting employees.” – Forbes
Even though Facebook’s reputation has gone through a bit of a dip, there is still no denying the fact that over 1 billion people are still using it.
