LinkedIn have recently introduced a rather annoying 5 second pop-up ad that appears ahead of any 2nd or 3rd degree connections you search using a free account. But what does it mean for the future of "free" LinkedIn accounts?

+Jonathan Campbell It may be a handy infographic and I'm sure it is very interesting, but on the small screen of an iPhone it is almost impossible to read. Given that many (most?) people access social media via mobile devices I think the creators of these diagrams may need to think again.

We take a look back at the most popular websites of 2004 and compare them against today's most popular sites, to see what's changed and where we're headed.

Social Recruitment Trainer & Boolean Black Belt
Introduction
I have worked as a Recruiter in Ireland and the Caribbean for the last 15 years but now run Social Talent, the world's leading provider of Online Recruitment Training.

We want to change the way that organisations identify talent globally by translating technology and educating front line recruiters through a premium, personalised and practical online learning experience.

Our promise is to deliver the world's best and most practical recruitment training in a consistent, high quality format, personalised by: who you are, where you are based and what you recruit for. 

Our expertise is in identifying and delivering the benefits of a Web 3.0 world to the recruitment industry. Our customers are recruitment agencies, corporate recruiters, headhunters, the HR and marketing departments of hiring organisations and providers of technology solutions to the recruitment industry.

We train recruiters in how to source passive candidates and we advise organisations on how to leverage social media, SaaS technology and video to source, attract and engage talent globally. 

We help companies and recruiters to source talent through social media and the web. 

We enable recruiters and hiring organisations to tap into the “passive” candidate market, which represents over 80% of the total labour pool, by providing them with the tools to source directly from the internet, by building talent communities on social media and helping corporates to develop and market their “employer brand” online in the places where their target audience spend the most time, namely social media.

Specialties: Online Recruitment Training, Social recruiting, boolean search, facebook marketing, social media marketing, talent acquisition, talent community management, internet sourcing, CIPD Certified Internet Recruitment trainer. Black Belt in Internet Recruitment Trainer
