Social Networks Despite What People Say About You....I Still Want to Hang Out
By User769227-Oracle on Aug 27, 2009
I keep hearing from a number of people that you are a distraction to me and that you take up my time when I should be focusing on work activities. Despite what those people say you help me in building our companies employment brand - you provide a great way to share with people not only the things we are doing here, but also share with people what it can be like to work here. I can't thank you enough for all your support during the times you have helped when I needed to find that "needle in a haystack" candidate.
The way we work is changing, being told not to use you during work hours is like trying to stop a tsunami by putting your hand out. I know that not everybody "gets you", but just because they don't understand you doesn't mean that you are a bad influence. I love that my management team understands you, they let us hang out together because they know the good I see in you. They also treat me like an adult and let me be responsible for my own actions. If you and I goofed off all day long and it affected my work - I am sure they would think differently, but the results you and I have delivered together far outweigh the negatives.
It is through you that I have been able to collaborate with and talk to so many new and interesting people. I have learned many new things through you and you make this world a much more connected place.
I know you are not a "silver bullet" that will magically solve all my recruitment problems, but when times have been tough you have been there for me.
I am interested to see what will become of you in the next few years - I think you will have to consolidate yourself somehow, there are new sites coming up daily - I can't keep up!! I look forward to more adventures with you and seeing what the future holds for you - if you need to find me I am at http://davidtalamelli.gizapage.com
