Fama Technologies created a piece of software that will screen potential employee's social media accounts at an advanced level. While companies are already screening applicants, this device amplifies the process and digs deeply into each user's history.

The ultimate goal for this software is to allow management to see if the company is hiring a compatible employee. The way people carry themselves on social media provides an insight into the way they will act in a professional environment.

Sites like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram will be scanned and highlighted in certain areas such as vulgarity and inappropriate posts. Although this process might seem like an invasion of privacy, each employee's social media and online content is made public as soon as it hits the web, which can be accessed to aid companies in finding ideal employees.
