Today, finding skilled, talented candidates using social media sites is as reliable as using more traditional methods, such as jobs boards, advertising, networking, word-of-mouth.
Now a day, social media is growing faster globally, so it has helped to improve the quality of placements for all Placement Agencies. It certainly allows job recruiters to tap into talent on a more personal level as well as faster communication and in the case of, say, LinkedIn even enabling you to target specific jobseekers.
Facts about social media:

They helps you to reach your right place for right opportunity that you can grab the chance and you can communicate with them easily and get response faster from them.
According to online marketing company, across the world there are 552 million daily users of Facebook; 6.9 million using Twitter; 75 million using Google+ and 25 million using LinkedIn.
The changing face of recruitment:
As social media sites have gathered a more professional following, they have added services. For instance, Facebook now offers business profile pages and there are all sorts of online recruitment tools that allow recruiters to gather automated referrals for candidates from employees within their social networks.
In these digital times, recruiters are also paying specialists such as Jobsite to mine social networks and collect information on worthy candidates across social media platforms as well as to match jobs to talent on the web.
As we all know from our social usage, an online profile is not always accurate. It makes sense, then, to use social media recruitment in tandem with traditional methods and ethical processes. That’s good news for recruitment consultants, who might otherwise fear becoming obsolete.
Nevertheless, it is here to stay and recruiters need to master it to stay ahead of the increasing competition in this field.
