Using Facebook as a screening process for new hires
Can anyone tell me how they are utilizing Facebook or MySpace as a screening process for new applicants? Is it recommended or not and legally what are the guidelines. We have heard many stories of people being hired by firms and then information is found out after they are hired on their Facebook that may have caused them not to hire this person. What are the general guidelines for use? Thanks for any and all input I can get. Do you need to be invited on to view their Facebook page??
