Social Media Background Checks

You may recall our post a few weeks ago regarding the dangers in using social media to screen potential applicants for employment.   Some states have reacted recently by proposing laws banning an employer from even requesting a social media password of an applicant in the interview process (a topic of a forthcoming post on this blog).  Against this background, many employers are deciding that it is best to use a third-party service for researching social media information regarding candidates.  Curious to see what options are out there for your company? Check out a good example of the approach being taken with Social Media Delivered.
