I wouldn't have a problem with Facebook in principle aside from the fact that I just don't give a fuck about "social networking", but Facebook is a corporate tool for douchebag advertisers now. "Find us on Facebook!" Kiss my fucking ass.
Yeah, these are steps BEFORE the interview. Interviews require someone's time. They often require flying someone out. They're not free. I agree that Facebook is a corporate tool for douchebag advertisers - I have friends that are marketers on toilet paper brands and can't fathom why they have Facebook fans, nor can I fathom why they're spending millions on high tech websites for toilet paper.
But it's fairly easy to get value out of the free product without liking stupid CPG brands.
