Why Recruiters Should Be Using Google+

Google’s answer to Facebook recently announced 100 million users. While that’s still nowhere near Facebook’s one billion, it clearly has a lot to offer its users – especially those who use other Google services.

Unlike Facebook, on Google Plus you can search for users very easily and it is becoming a contender to LinkedIn – especially if you recruit for technology talent. On top of that, recruiters also find the Hangouts feature very useful for group interviews.

The jury on Google+ remains out, but in this infographic Infographic Labs came up with twenty reasons to switch to it.

Google Plus users with the most followers:

  • Britney Spears (2.67 million)
  • Snoop Dogg (2.33 million)
  • Google CEO Larry Page (2.24 million)
  • Ashley Tisdale (2.04 million)
  • Hugh Jackman (1.96 million)
