Daily Digit is the story behind the numbers that make our world work.

Today we’re looking at social media posts. A new study finds 70% of employers check a candidate’s social media accounts before hiring.

While LinkedIn seems like the most logical site to peruse, employers head to Facebook more often.

The study found that’s because Facebook often has the most incriminating information. Among the top disqualifying factors were excessive partying, poor grammar, illegal drug use and racist posts.

On the flip side, 60% of job seekers look up the profile of their interviewer. However, 79% of those reported that their discoveries did not stop them from accepting the job.

Maybe it’s time to make your profiles private and delete those embarrassing posts. (Yahoo)
