Here is our weekly feature in which we share the top articles we enjoyed from the past week about recruitment marketing, social recruiting and anything else in the recruiting space. In this article, we’ll be talking about Platforms vs. Point Solutions, impressing hiring managers, HR Tech acquisitions and trends, perception mistakes and crisps for tweets.

And if you are at the HR Technology Conference this upcoming week make sure to stop by and say hi at Booth #1066.

At Kellogg’s #tweetshop, Customers pay for crisps with tweets by Marissa McNaughton (@MarissaMcN) (via @AndyHeadworth)

I thought this was a really interesting idea and approach from Kellogg’s and something we will see expand if it’s successful and as companies try to expand their social brands.  Wonder how this find it’s way into social recruiting.
