In this modern age of social media mania, employers can often learn more about an applicant through Facebook, Twitter, MySpace or Instagram than they would ever learn through traditional, professional means. For example, most job applicants can feign maturity and utmost professionalism during an hour-long job interview; how they present themselves on their social media pages, however, is more likely to reflect their true decorum. So, the questions become if, and to what extent, employers should use social media sites in deciding whether to offer employment to potential hires.
