DCH -- so when you use social media for recruitment, how do you do that, exactly? One could assume that most engineers are smarter than the average bear, and as such, their Facebook accounts will be set so that comments are "friends only." Mine certainly is. If you are not specifically allowed to see posts, comments and pictures, then there's not much you can learn. Since LinkedIn is supposed to be the "professional" social networking site, most users already ensure that content they make public there is already vetted.

@DCH How do you use social media for recruitment? And how does candidates' postings impact their chances of getting offered a position? For example which social media platforms do you go to when checking up on candidates and if a candidate doesn't have a profile there is that bad...or good?

We use social media for recruiting and definitely check out what candidates are posting about themselves (good, bad or just tto much).

The biggest issue I see is that everyone seems to have a different view about what social media is ... there is no standard definition. Personally, I think of social media as a digital attempt at a real time conversation. If there is a delay of more than 5 seconds in getting a response then I consider it to be a forum or discussion group instead. I'm going to simplify this even further, social media is merely the candy coating surrounding the chocolate center. It tells you it's candy but not what's inside ... it could be chocolate or it could be poison. You don't get the full picture, only a snapshot of the surface to tease you into wanting more (information).

This is exactly what other sites do. The results are not shown until you submit your survey, then your feed back is instantly included in the results after you vote. EEtimes surveys are still very much behind the times in this regard. (Yeah, I'm talking about you, EEtimes web guy).

Mine says "Content blocked by your organization" which at least tells me that it's the company net nannies...

I agree with the notion that social media is misinterpreted by engineers because of the "social" in the moniker. EEs tend to share their work challenges at distinct technical conferences, and if they see an overreaching subject concerning their careers or their personal interests, they react accordingly and actively. Otherwise catch them at a technical conference venue such as the ISSCC and the IEDM , two prominent confabs dedicated to circuits and devices.

Engineers sometime love to be in their own world. But social media can work in any profession if it is used for a primary purpose.

Good try, I finished survey. But quality of survey is quite poor and can be enhanced. I liked LinkedIn.

Engineers are sometimes too hardcore to appreciate the power of social medias. If you look at Facebook technically, it does not seem to have any special technology. But it works.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
