Posted by Erin Borgerson on August 22, 2013

The world of social media is ever changing, so it's important to stay up to date on the latest trends and statistics. But doing so isn't always easy. It seems like you Google "social media stats," and information from 2008 pops up. Luckily, we've got you covered.

We know you're busy, so we put together this SlideShare of the most important, and most recent, social recruiting statistics. As you'll see in the slides, social recruiting is becoming more and more popular, so maybe it's time for you to try it out. Not only is it (usually) free, but companies are reporting great success using LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter to recruit new talent. 

If you do decide to give social recruiting a try, let us know! We'd love to hear your experiences.
