Social Media’s 7 Deadly Sins

While social media can be excellent tools for your business, they also come with risks. Bloomberg Businessweek recently shared the seven deadly sins businesses commit while using social media. Avoid these to ensure your staffing firm is utilizing your social media in the best ways.

Compromising confidentiality.
