Abstract: 
Increasingly, professional social networks are being used to connect, collaborate, make valuable contacts, source ‘experts’ and for recruitment purposes. The majority (92%) of employers use social media to recruit, and 1 in 6 employees state that their current post is as a consequence of social media. ‘LinkedIn’ is the most popular social media network used by recruiters and it’s reported that more than a third of job seekers use this platform to enable them to find work.
