Managing Your Online Image Across Social Networks « The Reppler Effect

[…] So what do these results really tell us? From our perspective, there are three key takeaways:

  • Whether you like it or not, hirers are using social networks to screen job applicants. This means it is important to carefully manage your image on these types of sites.
  • Facebook and Twitter are being used a lot to screen job applicants. On Facebook and Twitter, we believe hirers are trying to get a more personal view of a candidate, rather than the resume-like view they will see on LinkedIn.
  • Hirers are looking at the social networking profiles of candidates very early in the process. This means that job seekers need to have their online act in order before they begin looking for a job.

    A Visual Twitter Tribute To Steve Jobs: #ThankYouSteve | AllTwitter

    leave a comment »

    […] Twitter user Miguel Rios […] took all tweets containing the hashtag #thankyousteve that were sent in the 4.5-hour period after Jobs’ death was announced, and made them into one of the most memorable images of Jobs we have.

    Rios tweeted that there are over 1,000 tweets in this image, all of which he personally read and included in the design. He ordered the tweets in terms of which ones received the most retweets, starting at the top left and moving to the bottom right.

    See the full size 7000×6386 pixels image at Flickr to read the tweets.
