One thought on “HRM TV: HR in social media 05/10-09/10

  1. Great job Sarah, the real meat of this instalment for me came at the end: how often should people post on social media? I agree with you that LinkedIn should be “the place” for professionals, but right now it’s a mixed bag. If people did post once a day, and used those moments for posting things of substance – opinions, ideas, perceptions, thoughts – my goodness it’d be the most valuable business site in the ether-sphere. It’s just that LI is not the most “social” of places to be at present: 1) no way to search for peoples’ posts or bookmark them, 2) totally spooky to look at people’s profiles encouraging people to hide their visits with anonymity, 3) accepting way too much noise – I rarely see a post these days that isn’t a stealth ad in some way or promoting the poster’s book right at the end. If LI focused more on thought sharing and collaboration, it’d be a true font of professionalism. But right now, it’s stuck looking for its core purpose – and a reliable stream of revenue.
