Gabbi Baker, a student at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., is like many college students today: She is an avid user of social media, reports U.S. News. For Baker, it’s a habit more than a hobby; she says she constantly checks her networks for updates, sometimes going less than 10 minutes between visits to her Twitter feed.

“I’ve really found [social media] to be an instrumental tool in building my network and learning what I want to do careerwise,” the senior business and marketing major says. “I think social media will continue to remain important to me as I move on to my first job.”

If faced with a job offer from a company that restricted access to social media websites in the workplace, Baker says she would be hesitant to accept it.

“I don’t know if I’d necessarily value a company that doesn’t see the value of social media,” she notes. “I couldn’t imagine not being able to check Twitter when I’m at work on my work computer.”
