Social media screening is an automated, AI-driven pre-employment background check. It is based on the candidate’s digital profiles found on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok as well as other online public forums.
Social media screening offers a deeper level of behavioral insight than background checks, driving records, or any other traditional method. Information found on social media offers HR professionals a current snapshot of a person’s attitude, habits, and behaviors. When used as part of the recruiting process, it offers recruiting teams a more complete idea of who the candidate really is. Ultimately, helping determine if a candidate is a right fit for the organization, or not.
