The article focuses on social recruiting. The term means recruitment using the social web, says the author. It can involve the use of social Internet sites, such Linkedln or Twitter, to discover and recruit people. According to Riges Younan, social recruiting harnesses Web 2.0 technologies and social media tools to communicate and recruit people. The author provides his work-in-progress definition of the term as the delivery of hiring decisions through web-based technology to facilitate shared understanding between employer and job seekers.
