Websites like Facebook and Twitter among others are used by the HR of many companies. Read on to know how these websites can be used to improve performance.

That’s more like every individual using a fast internet service is active on Facebook. You can create an official page for your company or business. Use it to share information about the vacant positions in your organization.
