What are they going to find out about you through your social media? How can they see your Facebook page if it's set to private where only your friends can see it?
First, they will check if you have a social media or digital presence to confirm that you are someone who's contemporary and unafraid of engaging on common technical platforms the companies services or customer also use to do business.
Next, they will check what you have to say. How do you engage, positive, negative, neutral, or other.

Culture fit plays HUGE role in the employee selection process so your digital presence matters.
