It's already started.

I've said this here a dozen times - not having a Facebook profile is detrimental to job hunting. Going as far as to say it means you're a mass murderer is nuts, but it means you're more likely to be an antisocial weirdo, or at the very least it makes it harder to confirm that someone seems like a decent hire.

Every recruiter will look you up in Facebook before contacting you. If they don't like what they see they will not contact you. If they see nothing but, for the other 8,000 equally qualified resumes in their hands they see something they like, they'll contact them over you. The push back I always get to this is "blah blah that can't be true they look at qualifications" as if there aren't a billion people out there qualified for nearly any open position, and as if you can tell from a single sheet of paper if one is more qualified than another. They're all qualified.

It's not as bad as not using LinkedIn even though that's become how the external recruiting is done.
