    With respect to staffing, don’t expect social network sourcing (it’s not recruiting) to fill positions quickly….

    Thank You,

    Good post Raj. Think about how others will view what you say. It’s amazing how emotional people get when politics are discussed. I know people who’ve been unfriended because they expressed preference for one party over the other. That’s a shame.

    Bravo! This is a fantastic article and so necessary! Although Social Media has become “old hat” in the business world in many ways, there seems to be a lack of etiquette out there. Although it is “social” it is still professional, and treating your work related platforms as you treat your personal ones is not professional at all- and often counterproductive. I think each and every one of the no-no’s listed above is important!

    As the owner of a boutique executive career management and recruiting firm, I am learning to navigate the social-professional and I am often shocked at what people consider “professional.”

    Seems to me that this is a Social-Professional Etiquette book in the making, Raj!
    Well done!

    Great post. I like to think about it this way: when using social media for business purposes – be it marketing or talent sourcing – treat it the same way as you would a professional networking event.

    You wouldn’t jump into the middle of a group unannounced and start promoting your service, job opening, etc. Or at least you wouldn’t do it more than once before people started avoiding you!

    Thanks for the insights, Raj!
