Folks are glued to their Smartphones almost 24/7 for personal and professional use, but should those uses be mixed?  Of course, but not without some limitations, especially while looking for a new job.  There are numerous digital sites all tied into what is called Social Media; here we will concentrate on some of the more popular apps.
