Forbes online comments that 70% of recruiters said they’d rejected applicants based on what they found online. So, what and when exactly do recruiters object against a prospective employee’s social network?

The good people at Reppler, which is a social media monitoring service, designed to help users manage their online image across different social networks, have put together this infographic to talk you through what recruiters said in a particular survey about social networks. It does so by showing users how they are perceived across social networks, by telling users the makeup of their social network connections, and by identifying any potential issues and risks. Reppler is a free service and supports various social networking services, like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
