- HRM Today
924 Members, professional HR orientation. Lots of SHRM overlap. Founded and operated by Jenn Barnes (HR Wench) , Lance Haun (YourHRGuy.com) and Laurie Ruettimann (Punk Rock HR). They have about 300 discussions. 65 Bloggers produce about 3 postings per day. (Unless I missed something). Lots of familiar names on the roster. On first blush, this looks like an aggregation site with feeds from lots of blogs. Nice level of quality for the user.
Newly redesigned, RBC has momentum. 16331 Members 4979 Discussions (about 15 per day) , 5599 Blog posts (about 15 per day). Founded by Jason Davis, the community is rich, complex and very active. (and my home)
- The New ERE
This beta suggests that ERE is jumping headfirst into the social network business. Take a look. Roughly 60 Blogs produce about 4 postings a day. Distinguished by its hyperactive forum and its vendor directory, ERE is home to a huge universe of recruiters, maybe as many as 35,000. Founded by David Manaster and operated by an amazing team.
- Talent Bar
Founded by Miles Jennings, TB claims nearly 20,000 members including many of the usual suspects. The forum has 1,300 discussions but it’s pretty quiet. The 750 blog posts seem to accumulate at the rate of 5 per day.
- Recruiter Earth
Founded by Chris Lavoie. 10,600 Members, 355 Discussions (about 4 per day), 211 Blog posts (about 2 or 3 per day)
