2. Recruit Top Prospects During Their ‘Angry Hours’ — Because Timing Is EverythingIf you’re going to be strategic in recruiting, realize that finding top performers and superstars on the Internet, on LinkedIn, and on social media is actually now quite easy. 

3. Facebook Is Planning A Move Into HealthcareThe company is exploring creating online “support communities” that would connect Facebook users suffering from various ailments. A small team is also considering new “preventative care” applications that would help people improve their lifestyles.

4. 9 Reasons You Should Know a Little HTML and CSSYou’ve heard over and over that everyone should learn to code. Alright already! But as a writer, marketer, finance guru or nonprofit worker, why in the world should you get into coding?
