Want a job? Get on Facebook

We have openings for the position of a content writer. The candidate must be a graduate and have passion for reading and writing in English. He/she must also be a Facebook member with at least 25 friends.

Above is a job listing on a popular job portal. Zapped? Don’t be. Several companies these days are on the lookout for youngsters with active social networking profiles. In fact, having a specified number of fans, friends or followers on these sites is now a hiring criterion. These ‘active netizens’ are hired by companies which wish to use social networks, online communities and other online mediums for marketing, sales and public relations.
