@99GR81 “most organisations are vomiting jobs” < most candidates are vomiting applications right back #SMIR
@James_Mayes @raymckeating “social” has no geography. Social media does. #SMIR
@TheSourceress I’m reminded of my blog post – It’s Called Social Media For A Reasonhttp://ht.ly/alG5a #smir
@_k_johnson Its not just about content. who’s gonna do the “social” & building of relationships – conversations etc – the long game #SMIR
Ben Phillips ‏ @TRecKnowledgy A linkedin status of “I’m recruiting for a blah blah blah” is not#socialrecruiting. We’ve been doing this on job boards since mid 90s#SMIR
#SMIR 75% of jobseekers look to the career website for info. Still key portal, but should link to & from other channels
@CasualFilms Social networks increasing in use, career websites decreasing over last 3 years as a way of finding out about employers #SMIR
 @DavidJohnston1 Show the conversations on your career site. Give insight and activity, but don’t vomit jobs…#SMIR
@RayMackeating Interesting…64% job seekers expect to find employers presence on on Facebook #SMIR 
@ToriAtHead Interesting stats- of recent graduates in the UK only 26% are on Twittter & 24% are on LinkedIn, but 93% are on Facebook #SMIR
 @James_Mayes#smir Def challenging the stats here. 34% of students expect an employer to be on G+? No, I think not.
@JackkBarton LinkedIn isn’t Social Media #SMIR 
@AmarSanghera People who just want a “job” want a quick application process. People who want a “CAREER” appreciate & understand a longer process#SMIR 
 @JackkBarton LinkedIn isn’t Social Media #SMIR <if you just advertise & search. That’s a job board
@Socialmediarec Content rich twitter profile four times more popular than jobs Twitter profile for successsappts #smir
@socialjulia “It’s not about stats, it’s about reality.” Favourite quote of the day so far from #smir
@James_Mayes @mobile_dave At #smir @successappts are showing off what they’ve done with mobile. Might be a review candidate for you.
@irishrecruiter: LinkedIN Groups surely work better than LinkedIN Jobs! 🙂 #smir
@ehsantweets Recruitment & attracting talents based on principles of advertising is not the best approach. Social recruitment = exact type of job. #SMIR 
@garelaos Well done to @successappts for getting stuck into SM and embracing failure too. The industry could learn a lot from them. #smir

@hhudda_newfront It’s all about engagement! Do it, and do it well. #SMIR
@UKSourcers “You’ve just got to go for it, there’s risk involved with everything you do in business.” Steven Selby @successappts #smir 
@garelaos if you aren’t creating value in some way as an org, then you dont exist #community #smir
@TRecKnowledgy The key is to attract (& connect) in #LinkedInGroups, & take candidates to your ‘platform’ like a blog #SMIR
@JackkBarton @TheSourceress I think there has to be a distinction between business media and social media that is then used for business.#SMIR 
@Ehsantweets Couple of years ago some brands said Social Media is about experiment. It is not an experiment anymore; just the time to get it right. #SMIR 
@Socialmediarec Blogged: How job seekers use Social Media When Job Hunting And What They Expect To See From Employers http://bit.ly/JNiRCJ #smir
@RayMckeating Social media helps bring down the cost associated with recruiting#SMIR 
@MrPeterReagan Consider a thousand bad comments about your business on social media as free research. Monitor, Listen and take immediate action.#SMIR 
@MrPeterReagan Stop being afraid of people accessing social media in work time. Let them do it and the 2-3 week spike in activity will soon subside. #SMIR
@MrPeterReagan Agencies raise your game. If customers are better at using social media to recruit than we are, then market share is under threat!#SMIR
@CasualFilms “Video is THE best way to give people an insight into your business”@katrinacollier @winningimpress #SMIR
