How to Double your Twitter Connections?

Most individuals have an account with some or the other Social Media channel with Twitter being a popular one. Whether you are a Commoner or a Recruiter or a Sourcer you have to have connections. If not then you need to make connections. Especially if you have to select candidates with the desired calibre and skill sets for the vacancy.

So if you’re a Twitter user and you need to Source Candidates here are a few ways on “How to double your Twitter Connections?”

Complete your Profile

Ensure that you have a profile picture so that people can identify you, view other people’s profiles and take notes so that you can improve your profile. Choose your words wisely so that you can make a compelling bio data to attract more users because let’s face it we all want to get noticed.

Engage your Followers

Ensure that you tweet more, so that people can tweet you too. This will help you to build your connections. Keep posting so people follow you and when you have people following you make sure you follow them back. Pay attention to Twitter Analytics to find out what topics interests your audience. Once you know that then be sure to Tweet the same. Besides you can post content in any media form videos, blogs, images, quotes, poles etc. to keep your followers engaged. Sometimes even a simple thank you Tweet to new followers or favourites and retweets received can be engaging. For similar tasks you can use tools like Commun’it to schedule such Tweets on a weekly basis for instance.      

Find new Followers

Use your present connections to search for Talent or in turn build your connections. Also look for and follow more people with similar interests. As they will most definitely be following people who are like minded who you can follow to grow your connections once they follow you back.

How to view third Degree and out of Network Profiles

For a recruiter apart from sourcing candidates via Social Media platforms they even dig into their existing connections. Just imagine if you could view connections that aren’t your immediate ones, won’t it assist and boost sourcing results?

Well if you have been having as much trouble sourcing the right candidates as most of us usually do and are looking to View Third Degree and out of Network Profiles then, take a deep breath; your search is finally over. What a relief!

Are you fed up with the constant interruptions during sourcing caused by ads, then that too can be taken care of with a simple tool to do that for you.

So let’s take care of the issue at hand i.e. “How to view third degree and out of network profiles?”

Viewing third degree and out of network profiles has never been as simple as it is now. This can be done via Private Browsing. Here’s how you can browse privately irrespective of the Browser used. Whether you are using Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Safari there’s a way nonetheless.  

Google Chrome

This browser has a feature that enables you to browse privately i.e. incognito. Here’s how:

  • ‘Left’ click the ‘Customize and control Google Chrome’ icon (the 3 Dots icon on the right hand side of the page)
  • Select  the option ‘New incognito window’
  • To speed up the process use the short cut ‘Ctrl+Shift+N’

Chrome allows you to access the profile searched in the private browser. Before opening the profile in any job portal you can ‘right’ click on the link and select the option ‘Open link in new incognito window’. Once you do this any profile you access will open in the incognito browser with its own tab.

Mozilla Firefox

Like most browsers even Firefox has the private browsing feature. To shift to private browsing follow these steps:

  • ‘Left’ click the ‘Open Menu’ icon (the 3 Bar icon on the right hand side of the page)
  • Selecttheoption ‘New Private Browsing’
  • To speed up the process use the short cut ‘Ctrl+Shift+P’

Once you are in the New Private Browser you can view and search profiles easily. This will assist you in your search for third and out of network profiles thus improving your sourcing results. 

Safari

Most browsers have the private browsing feature. To access it follow these simple steps:

  • Under the tools section, ‘left’ click the icon (the Cog icon on the right hand side of the page)
  • Select the options ‘Private Browsing’ and ‘Block Pop – up Windows’

Once you have done this your Private Browsing is set up and you can start searching and accessing profile links that meet your criteria. This will also enable you to access third and out of network profiles which will boost your sourcing results.

Prevent Pop Ups

Most browsers will take care of these interruptions via private browsing; if it isn’t then you always have a tool AdBlock that will do this for you.

So here’s the answer to your troubles and if you have any other to add do let us know in the comments section. This will increase our knowledge as well as our readers.

In today’s hyper-connected digital world and the pace at which technology is evolving; keeping up is next to impossible especially since the response time has become instantaneous. Add to that most organisations have a lot of tasks that require HRs to spend valuable time on multiple tasks. They are expected to micromanage even redundant tasks thus affecting their productivity. A development such as this increases the complexity of tasks leaving HR and Talent Acquisitionists alike overwhelmed with the magnitude of the tasks allotted.

Developments like this make simple tasks complex to finish within a fixed time frame hampering productivity. It is therefore essential for organisations to review the tasks allotter at regular intervals to identify the redundant tasks. By doing away with such inefficient tasks it frees up more time to focus on the core tasks that actually have an impact.  In such a scenario utilising different IT Techniques that can simplify the HR process becomes important. For this reason we @SourcingAdda conducted a discussion upon the suggestion of one of the Pune group members Shweta where we discussed the, “Different IT Techniques used by HR to simplify the HR process”. If you’re wondering what was discussed and whether you’d be able to review the thoughts expressed due to your absence then you’re right. We’ll be disclosing the chat for your reference, so let’s begin…

The chat above clearly shows the insights that were shared from which we can safely conclude that it was an informative discussion. The insights shared were thought provoking making HRs and Talent Acquisitionists alike think about how they can be more efficient and productive in their work. Sometimes the simple and the minute things that we overlook have the potential to make all the difference to the tasks to resume.

If you’ve found this discussion insightful then you’ll be interested in how to safe guard the current & future business prospects as Consultants?
