Abstract: Follett Software Company, which earlier this year was ranked one of the world’s top companies using Twitter to recruit new employees, can now be followed on Twitter as well as found on Facebook.


MCHENRY, Ill., Sept. 2, 2009 – Follett Software Company, which earlier this year was ranked one of the world’s top companies using Twitter to recruit new employees, can now be followed on Twitter as well as found on Facebook.

The company—which helps K-12 school districts manage key learning resources such as library materials, textbooks, school assets and information for data-driven decision making—doesn’t often find itself ranked on a list that includes the likes of Burger King, Expedia, Hershey Company, Mattel, MTV and UPS. But when Job-Hunt.org recently published its list of the world’s "Top 50 Employers Using Twitter for Recruiting," Follett Software Co. staked its claim as a company that recognizes the potential of social networking.

Now, Follett Software Company has created a page on Facebook, the website that currently has more than 250 million active users worldwide. In addition, Follett has created a feed on Twitter, the micro-blogging service that in 2009 has witnessed a dramatic surge in daily users.

"We were early to the game in job recruiting on Twitter, and now we’ve taken the next logical networking steps," said Michael Campbell, marketing director, Follett Software Co. "As one of the educational industry’s top software companies, it is imperative that we are an active social media participant, for both our customers and employees alike."
