Can Facebook actually get you a job?


Social networking: is it the key to success in the information age or a colossal waste of time? The prevailing opinion is that if you want to sell yourself or your product you have to blog, tweet, share, blab, carp, bill and coo so you can be liked, dugg, hugged, diddled or snagged. Whoever gets the most comments wins.

Or do they?

To find out whether social networking actually pays off, I turned to Ted Murphy, the CEO of Izea, which helps bloggers, tweeters and other "social media publishers" monetize their content by connecting them with advertisers desperate for eyeballs.
