Social networking for recruiting - Gold mine or land mine?

"According to a recent survey conducted by executive search firm ExecuNet, a striking 77 percent of respondents indicated that they use the web for screening potential job candidates.

Social networks are a convenient and free way to verify a candidate's r�sum�claims, unearth undesirable behaviors, and gain insight into their skills, personality, and potential cultural fit. As a result, there has been a growing trend in using networking sites including Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and LinkedIn to make hiring decisions."
