Huh? HR Chief: ‘Instagram is the New LinkedIn’

Huh? HR Chief: ‘Instagram is the New LinkedIn’

CEOs, salespeople, and marketing professionals are prone to hyperbole. However, heads of HR rarely are. So when I recently read a story quoting the chief people officer at Jobvite saying “Instagram is the new LinkedIn,” to say I was taken aback would be an understatement. It’s particularly strange considering the fact Jobvite has 1,200 Instagram followers versus over 28,000 LinkedIn followers.
