Recruiting Via Social Media

Recruiting Via Social Media

Companies are increasingly using sites like Twitter and Facebook to recruit the right candidates. Uber Cabs and Twitter India are hiring. But unless you follow the right people on Twitter or are on their mailing list, you’ll never know about it. These companies aren’t putting out advertisements on their websites or using traditional recruitment companies to find them the best candidates; but have been sending out mailers and tweets to customers or followers.

How To Get Your Hashtag To Trend On Twitter

wealthymattersThere are many reasons why certain hashtags trend. Some trend because of a big following while others trend because of the news. Getting your hashtag to trend is by no means an easy feat, but it is possible. In order to get your hashtag on Twitter to trend, these are the 5 things you need.

  1. Have a large, targeted following. Many of the people who get their own hashtag trending tend to have well over 50,000 followers. Find the most successful Twitter user in your niche and follow that person’s followers who are likely to follow back. Your following will eventually grow large enough to get a hashtag to trend on Twitter.
  2. Make the hashtag something good enough to trend. If you are approaching a certain follower milestone, tweet that out. Uber Facts used the hashtag #UberFactsTo6Million to get more people knowing about their approaching milestone.
  3. Give your followers a reason to tweet with the hashtag.Eg Uber Facts decided to do a $100 giveaway.
  4. Ask for tweets and retweets. Anyone who tweeted #UberFactsTo6Million or retweeted Uber Facts tweet with the hashtag got entered into the giveaway. As the hashtag started getting attention, people went to Uber Facts’ original tweet, saw the giveaway, and decided to retweet the tweet and get in on the action.
  5. Give people a reason to continue tweeting. Uber Facts decided to double the prize from $100 to $200 in honor of the tweet trending. This got more people’s attention and resulted in the hashtag trending for a longer period of time.

Those are the 5 things you need in order to get a hashtag to trend on Twitter. It is entirely possible that you become one of those movie stars or influential singers who has million of active followers, but for those of us who won’t be getting those two things, this is the best way to get a hashtag to trend on Twitter.

YouTube Views

walthymattersLast night while listening to some old Nirvana songs on YouTube,I got to know about authentichits. Some or the other commenter was suggesting it to another who was trying to make it as a musician.

Now I already knew of bots:Link.Now this was something else,real human views on sale.I took a look at the site today and found that they also deliver real twitter followers,facebook likes,instagram photo shares and soundcloud plays.So this was how some people got their content to go viral……..

A google search also turned up this:Link

The moral of the story?Don’t believe that everything that’s popular looking is automatically better.
