How New Technologies Have Made It Easier To Find People        

Technology has grown and improved to make recruitment more effective and efficient. It involves saving time and reducing HR expenses. As a result, background checks have become far less labor-intensive than in the past. 

The benefits of technology extend beyond the employment sphere. Young people are using it to meet, and it is increasingly being deployed to find missing people. This article will explore all these benefits of technology.  

More Efficient Assessment of Candidates 

Most people submit job applications online in this day and age. HR staff is able to assess applicants more effectively using automated tracking systems. This leaves hiring managers more time to talk to future staff members. The recruitment process runs far more smoothly as a result.

Hiring managers and recruiters find that modern technology can help avoid bias and prejudice. It makes it easier to review resumes. AI powers automated tracking technology, leading to greater efficiency in evaluating candidate pools. AI has helped expand applicant bases worldwide, with more and more people being hired remotely. 

Detecting Potential Issues  

AI and machine learning help recruiters foresee issues. They do this by keeping them updated on relevant events in an employee’s life, such as an arrest, by ensuring uninterrupted data access. The latest technology, such as that used by people search sites, can help them compare any documents provided to other details a job applicant or a current employee has provided. AI and machine learning also enable facial recognition and live verification, making hiring practices safer and more secure.  

Technology Helps Young People Meet 

Making friends isn’t limited to school or the neighborhood for today’s teens. According to a Pew Research study, the majority make most friends online. Boys are likelier to make internet friends than girls: 61% vs. 52%. 

Social media users and gamers are particularly likely to make friends online. Teens who play video games with others regularly are more likely to make friends online than other teens. They also have more friends than those who don’t make friends online. 

Almost two-thirds of teens on social networks say they have made friends online compared to fewer than a quarter who say they don’t use social media often. As with gaming, frequent use of social networks and apps correlates with making lots of friends online. 

How do They Meet?

Teens use a wide variety of digital platforms and websites that facilitate meetings and interactions with new people, including blogging sites, online video sites, games and networks, discussion boards, forums, social media platforms, etc. 

The authors of the above study also inquired into where these teens met new friends as part of follow-up. Again, social media and video gaming platforms emerged as the most common venues to meet and interact with new people. 

Almost 40% of teens said they formed lasting friendships on Instagram, Twitter, and other social media. More than a fifth met someone while playing a video game online. 

Social networking sites were the main way for girls to meet people online. More than two-fifths of female respondents told the authors of the study they made friends through Instagram, Twitter, or another social media site. 

Boys were more likely to make friends while playing video games, although 31% said they also made friends on social networks. 

More than half of the teens that took part in the study said they had made one or more friends online. More than a third eventually met them in person. 

On average, a fifth of all teens saw someone they first met online in real life. Boys and girls were equally likely to have met online friends face to face. 

On a final note, a previous Pew Research study found phone apps facilitated interactions with a variety of online content.   

How Technology Helps Find Missing People 

Before beginning to explore the depths of a Hawaiian forest, Yesenia D’Alessandro downloaded a GPS recording program to her cell phone. It wasn’t a pleasure trip: she was joining a large group of volunteers to look for Amanda Eller, a friend of hers who’d disappeared about a month prior. 

She flew in from Maryland to join the rescue, weeding through dense forestation, wading through rivers, and generally struggling to survive. Like the other volunteers, she was convinced they had to look everywhere. 

The group collected GPS data of the covered ground using phone apps. Organizers of the rescue effort entered the data on a special computer-based map to see where to look next.

Eventually, the technology led them to the missing person, who had survived in a forest for more than two weeks. She had eaten plants and drunk water from a stream. Her rescue shows the potential of technologies to locate missing people.
