Social Networking

In this assignment, you will explore the potential impact of social networking on the workplace.


Employers have based hiring decisions on social networking site content. In your response, answer the following questions:

Do you believe that assessing a candidate partially based on his or her social networking site (for example, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, or LinkedIn) is justified?
In what ways do employers using social networking sites for the evaluation of job candidates compare with school officials using these sites for student discipline?
What would your profile on social networking sites tell an employer about you?

By the due date assigned, post your responses in at least 3 paragraphs to this Discussion Area. Your response should rely upon at least two sources from professional literature. This may include the University online library resources, relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, or .gov). Write in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources (i.e., APA format); and use accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
