Hi Todd,

Do you use social media sites like Facebook and LinkedIn as part of your hiring process?

If so, be careful! As our feature story points out, when used incorrectly, social networks can get your company into serious legal trouble!

I hope you enjoy this month's issue of Great Ideas, and if you're currently looking to hire, please let me know. We have some great temp-to-hire candidates available right now, and we can also provide temporaries to fill in while you are going through the hiring process.

FEATURE STORY: Beware of Using Social Networking in Hiring

With over 400 million active users, if Facebook were a country, it would be the third largest in the world!

Social networks offer an incredible wealth of information, and it can be tempting to use these sites to screen job candidates. In fact, 75 percent of recruiters do use the Internet as part of the screening process.

But using social networks for screening can expose your company to a huge risk from discrimination lawsuits.

So how can you take advantage of all the information social networks offer and still protect your organization?
