Yeldemo Group's curator insight, June 12, 7:46 PM

LinkedIn works via active participation.  However, as a job/employment site it has the potential to be harmful to majority of its users should many subjects or even the quality of articles covered were to be given candid, honest responses. 

One concern often discussed in Networking groups is the harvesting of job seekers resumes by unrepeatable recruiters.  A second though unintended consequence is the opportunity for hiring managers or generalist to preemptively filter out qualified minority job candidates.  This mitigates the old "shameful" practice of discovering the race of a candidate at the interview and having to dismiss their candidacy under the guise of... you name the mired of old excuses...

CEOs are finally embracing social. What does it mean to you? | Mark Schaefer

CEOs are finally embracing social. What does it mean to you? | Mark Schaefer | Alchemy of Business, Life & Technology | Scoop.it

An analysis found that 80 percent of the CEOs of the world’s largest 50 companies are engaged online and on social media, more than double of what the same study found in 2010.

The findings are interesting because not long ago being social was once considered too risky, the article said. CEOs feared that saying the wrong thing online would ignite a firestorm of antagonists, dissatisfied customers, and disgruntled employees, who could threaten the company’s reputation. Now, having a digital strategy integrated across multiple channels is the new mandate to neutralize criticism. It’s become more important to transparently tell the company’s story and join the conversation.

Research  shows that five significant trends over the past five years have contributed to CEOs’ increased sociability....
