Social networking is a major part of our world at this point. Everyone that I know is a member of facebook, twitter, linkedin, Google+, and/or tumblr. I'm not. I'm not a member of any social networking site with the exception of this one.
I've heard some people say that if you want to get hired, you need to be a part of a social networking site like linkedin. My desire to be a part of these sites is close to 0. I've worked too hard to get off of these social networking to get back on at this point.
But is it true? Is it necessary that in order to get a job that it's essential to be a part of social networking?
