What Happened After I Joined LinkedIn, 11 Years Ago | Donna Serdula | Pulse | LinkedIn - 0 views

  •  
    "A sinking feeling came over me and I realized that my LinkedIn profile did not portray me as a top notch professional. My LinkedIn profile did not sell my skills or show any differentiation between me and the millions of other LinkedIn users out there. My profile basically said, "This lady doesn't have anything that sets her apart from the crowd.""

University Pages: LinkedIn Launches New College Profiles - 0 views

  •  
    The professional connections site LinkedIn is launching a new section of its social network Monday: University Pages targets younger users who want to connect with colleges. More than 200 schools now have profile pages, according to LinkedIn. As part of the new effort, the company also dropped its minimum age to 14 in the U.S. The new college profiles allow prospective students to see how many of a school's graduates are on LinkedIn, as well as a breakdown of the main fields in which they work. The pages also list the top employers of alumni.

The 13 Dos and Don'ts Of Job Searching While You're Still Employed - 0 views

  •  
    "With so many people on LinkedIn, having a complete profile these days won't raise any suspicions, Teach says. "Perhaps the first place a hiring manager will look when they have a job candidate is at the job candidate's LinkedIn profile. It's best to keep it updated all the time so that you don't have to rush to complete it when you start looking for a new job." However, don't indicate that you're looking for new job opportunities on your profile, in case your current employer monitors your page."

Narcissists Can Be Identified By Their Facebook Accounts - 0 views

  •  
    "The researchers found that the number of Facebook friends and wallposts that individuals have on their profile pages correlates with narcissism. Buffardi said this is consistent with how narcissists behave in the real-world, with numerous yet shallow relationships. Narcissists are also more likely to choose glamorous, self-promoting pictures for their main profile photos, she said, while others are more likely to use snapshots."

State of Delaware House Bill # 309 - Social media privacy in education - 0 views

  •  
    "Under current law there is no recognized right to privacy in a student's or applicant's social networking site passwords and account information. This Bill makes it unlawful for a public or nonpublic academic institution to mandate that a student or applicant disclose password or account information granting the academic institution access to the student's or applicant's social networking profile or account. This Bill also prohibits academic institutions from requesting that a student or applicant log onto their respective social networking site to provide the academic institution direct access to the student's or applicant's social networking site profile or account. It is acknowledged by the General Assembly that new technological advances in internet use and social networking require new approaches to protecting reasonable expectations of privacy in personal information."

Hey Job Applicants, Time to Stop the Social-Media Sabotage - 3 views

  •  
    Many companies now search candidates' social-media accounts to get a better feel for their personalities, to see if they have creative flair, and to find out how well they communicate. Done right, your profile can work in your favor. Of 2,184 hiring managers recently surveyed by CareerBuilder, one-fifth said a candidate's online profile helped them land a position. More often, though, it backfires: 43 percent said they found information that led them not to hire a candidate, up 9 percentage points from last year. That trend means either that more job applicants are behaving badly online or that human resources is getting stricter in sniffing out problems.
  •  
    I think this article raises a point that we should absolutely acknowledge. Although I don't believe I am "behaving badly" online, what if some of my viewpoints do not entirely mesh with a future employer. Are they less likely to hire me because I have critical opinions about certain policies, etc.? I think it is this issue in particular that makes people reticent to fully participate. However, this is our new reality. How to balance it?

Online profile pictures leave lasting impressions, researchers say - Technology & Science - CBC News - 0 views

  •  
    "There's already a lot of research into how we form impressions of people based on facial features alone. We see a picture of someone and almost immediately make an assessment of that person. As much as we know we shouldn't, we judge books by their covers."

Farewell to Facebook - 0 views

  •  
    "Horror stories have been published about employers asking for job applicants' Facebook passwords. Recently, psychologists discovered that employers frown upon applicants without a Facebook presence. The lack of a profile raises many red flags: is this person anti-social? Was once tagged in too many party photos? Is he or she just pretentious?"

Are aggregation and curation journalism? Wrong question - 0 views

  •  
    "As more and more competitors for traditional media outlets emerge - whether they are corporations like The Huffington Post or teenagers in war-torn countries trying to do journalism on the fly, like the 14-year-old profiled in a recent New York Times story - there seems to be a growing obsession with defining what journalism is, and who deserves (or doesn't deserve) to be called a journalist. Is the man who live-blogged the Osama bin Laden assassination a journalist? Is National Public Radio's Andy Carvin, who has been using Twitter as a one-man newswire during the Arab Spring, a journalist?"

Delaware Passes Student Social Media Privacy Bill - 0 views

  •  
    "Both chambers of the Delaware Legislature have now given unanimous approval to a bill that would keep schools from taking even a single peek at their students' social media profiles. The prohibition applies to all the state's students, regardless of whether they are enrolled in a public or a private school. The measure, HB 309, is one of a pair dealing with social media privacy."

Teens Are Turning Away from Facebook Because Tumblr Is Real, and Parent-Free - 0 views

  •  
    "To contend with these annoying developments, teens aren't deleting their Facebook accounts; they're just using them less and less, spending more time on Twitter and Instagram, where conservations are limited to short-form text, links, and simple photos; or Tumblr, which emphasizes content over consolidated user profiles."

Do Young People Care About Privacy? - 0 views

  •  
    They don't see privacy as simply keeping secrets. They understand privacy as controlling information flow. It is rare these days to be able to hide information from absolutely everyone. There are too many technologies that capture images and information. Instead, people control who sees their information. They set their social media profiles to allow certain people to have access but others not to have access. They allow some companies to have their data but do not want others to access it or want it used in some ways but not others. Privacy isn't all-or-nothing - it's about modulating boundaries and controlling data.
