We all know how social media dominates our life so much today.

Thus analysing your social media profile gives a good idea about your personality even to so much details that you too might not be knowing about. Apart from this, a social media profile tells a lot about your likes, dislikes, what circle you live in and your friends, social activities that are preferred and much more.

Not only this, there are only 4% of employers out there who do not do cyber stalking before deciding to give a job to a prospective candidate. So now you understand that how vital and important it is to have a good social media profile.
