    As an HR professional, it doesn’t take much effort to see the similar pitfalls we both face in our use – or non-use – of social media. I’ve argued for several years that examination of the “virtual” lives of applicants will someday be part of our normal due diligence in the hiring process, and I think we’re rapidly approaching that point. At the same time, there are many potential missteps to be made in what I post, how I respond to posts, and who I “friend” or “follow”. I think your law review article provides a lot of great examples I can use in refining my own professional online “dos and don’ts”. Thanks for linking!
