Chelsea Rice, for HealthLeaders Media, October 14, 2013

With all of the photo-sharing capabilities, Facebook is a great resource for a job seeker to investigate day-to-day life and brand messaging of a future employer. It's also a great way for employers to stand out from the crowd.

Facebook's company page has 95703934 "Likes," From charities to appreciation days to celebrity concerts at the office, it's full of posts about employee events. The company is letting the world know how much it values its employees.

The length of their tenure, what company they moved on to next—all of this information is leaving impressions on your talent pool.
