A recent survey of hiring managers and human resource professionals revealed that 70 percent of employers use social media to screen candidates before hiring them, up from 60 percent in 2016 – and 11 percent in 2006.

Topping those reasons: provocative or inappropriate photos and videos; information about drinking or using drugs; discriminatory comments related to race, gender, religion; and bad-mouthing of a previous company or fellow employee.
