South Africa Recruiters – You Should be sourcing on Facebook #WesleySocial

I came across this article Top 20 biggest websites in South Africa. The statistics for Top websites visited by South Africans makes interesting reading for us sourcing geniuses 🙂 Bottom line the masses are on Facebook! so we should be sourcing on Facebook and as we already know they are on Google but Google takes number one and number two spots! I still believe Google Plus will make it big. For those into online advertising, I guess and should be your targets. Also note how high YouTube is… #2016 will be interesting

The Twitter wall was a large digital screen!

LinkedIn iPad App. WeszMadz looks into it.

Yes! Oh Yes!! I was waiting for this moment for a while. The LinkedIn iPad App!

The moment has arrived! First of all I love it.

I was looking for the the Groups functionality and couldn’t find one. Then I got excited! It’s under All Updates top left next to the LinkedIn Icon. Click and see the pull down menu.  Welcome screen has three tabs 1. All Updates 2. You 3. Inbox. This is where Groups should feature, I think. Search People is on the top right.

The All updates page is kewl! and it comes with a calendar if you activate the option on settings. When reading your inbox messages you can see the full profile of the person who sent the message including activity

Enjoy the slide show to view the app’s screen shots


Thank you LinkedIn!
