Social media background checks have gained quick popularity among employers in the United States over the years. Social media screening refers to when a hiring manager reviews a job candidate’s social media profiles to ensure an applicants’ credibility and competency in the hiring process.
A social media search can expose applicant information that is usually not easy to find through a conventional background check. Social media screening is used to find whether the candidate is a good fit for the organization’s culture. Whether the candidate’s personality matches company goals or even the skill set claimed in the interview or resume could be exhibited in the candidate’s everyday life.
