Abstract

The current paper discusses findings from an exploratory study concerning the type, frequency of use and the impact of social networking sites on unemployed. The study's objectives were to assess participants' under training: usage of social networking sites, and the degree to which these helped increase their opportunities for employability, educational enhancement, and contributed to their psychological uplift and social support. The paper contributed to the research on social networking and the education of the unemployed in a country where similar research is sporadic.
