Social media are now perceived to be changing human resources departments' roles and functions. A recent Comp Analysis pulse survey, conducted among small and large employers in the S.F. Bay Area, indicated that 95% of the 60 organizations who responded to the question believed that social media (Blogging, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, etc.) would change HR's role to some extent. The authors expect to see rapid changes in social media usage and perceptions in business and society in general.
