How can Recruitment Agencies be social?

I led a talk at TalentNet Live is month, (as a discussion/debate rather than a presentation) - discussing the various sides of the argument, around whether frankly recruitment agencies are equipped to be social. 
Equally, `should` agencies be social...? Some would argue against. 

Hope the sound is ok, but it was a good debate in contributions from +Stephen O'Donnell +Jonathan Campbell +Bill Boorman and others...  
 
Well worth a watch > +Steve Ward and others give insights on how recruitment agencies can be social.

This is an excellent and fascinating piece from +Andrew Grill - looking at the lack of understanding of social at leadership level within business; and how it can impact hiring.  
I see and hear this often - particularly the "We'd rather that you didn't continue your blog" comment.

Following on from the EConsultancy article about `Social Media Managers who Sell` - I wrote this last week regarding the change I have seen in some quarters around that very subject.

This really is a good question! In my position as a SM Manager I report to CRM, but work closely with Marketing, Sales, Customer Services, Content and (not surprisingly) the Business Analysts. However, this format is constantly changing as the company begins to look at social differently and re-defines what we want from it.

What is everyone else's internal experiences in social? Would be really nice to hear more about this! :)

This is a very interesting article about hiring a Social Media Manager, and I guess - how we are starting to looking at how the role is changing, and the needs are different.

It's an old article - but interesting all the same.
