LinkedIn overwhelmingly trumps Facebook and Twitter as the social network recruiters use to search for job candidates, with 48 percent using LinkedIn alone, according to a recent study by Bullhorn, Inc.

Facebook is the least-used network by recruiters, although more candidates are looking to use it as a professional tool.
