Presents outlets that you need to embrace now to recruit the next generation of talent. Includes links to a lot of great resources you can use to tap into these outlets.

Nice Real Life Example of how responding customer negative feedback on Social Media can enhance your brand and create positive PR.
Short article on common problems shared by recruiters about job boards. Totally agree with Jeff that job boards need to start showing recruiters the results that they produce for them to remain relevant.

Really interesting take on Geolocation programs such as FourSquare and Godwalla and how they can affect (and more importantly enhance) your personal brand online.

You may have seen the 1st version of this but here is a revamped version. Some great Social Media stats as well as a pretty slick looking video! Love the line “The ROI of Social Media is Your Company will still exist in 5 years!”
