In particular, 9% were planning to increase spending on recruitment through the use of social networking sites. Earlier in 2008, a survey noted 12% of Canadian employers were already screening candidates via the Internet on a regular basis while 19% planned to begin using these resources for the same purpose that year. A June 2008 survey of 3,169 hiring managers and human resource professionals in the US indicated that 1 in 5 use social networking sites to research job candidates. 34% found information during their searches that lead them to reject a potential candidate from the selection process. <br />

  13. 13. 2010 Statistics  Facebook has over 400 million active users. Twitter has around 75 million users, but a lot of current users are inactive.  In the U.S. the active unique social network audience grew roughly 29% from 115 million in February 2009 to 149 million in February 2010.  Active unique users of social networks are also up nearly 30% globally, rising from 244.2 million to 314.5 million collectively.<br />
  14. 14.  What can an employer find out while looking for information online? Many social networking sites have fill-in type forms that ask for a whole host of personal information. Others give you options on what information you wish to make public. Many people don't consider what they say on social networking sites to be 'public' in nature. Instead, they see it as a forum to connect with friends when in fact, anything put on the Internet is public domain. <br />
