  13. 13. Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin tend to generate a lots of content. It can be hard for the employer to get the right information about the candidate.
  14. 14. Be careful with candidates</li></ul> “Social media can be manipulated. Don’t take everything that you read as the gospel truth” EdvarclHeng, Social Media Manager, Medicom<br /> “Turn around time is too slow. It takes at least a few days to be connected to the candidate. Very often, after linked with the candidate, he / she is not interested to move. It takes more time for persuading rather than introducing. Not many AE and AM candidates. Candidates don't respond timely in general. I don't get that many invites from candidates. Instead, have to proactively search for potential candidates using the filter.”<br /> —Angela Wai, MSLGROUP Asia<br />
