Today, Twitter released fresh statistics which shows that users now send out more than 50 million tweets per day. This is huge. Millions of people are having conversations on Twitter, talking about diverse issues, including brands and jobs. As it relates to Social Recruiting, these conversations and happening and will continue, even if a company chooses not to be involved.
Folks were tweeting 5,000 times a day in 2007. By 2008, that number was 300,000, and by 2009 it had grown to 2.5 million per day. Tweets grew 1,400% last year to 35 million per day. Today, we are seeing 50 million tweets per day—that’s an average of 600 tweets per second.
How does this affect Social Recruiting? The point is that people are having conversations via Twitter, sending tweets and retweeting. It is becoming more clearer that this will surely be the future of recruiting, and potentially the Job Board of tomorrow.
