The use of social media has made employment and advancement for millions of people more difficult, according to a study released by the Pew Research Center on Wednesday.
The report, “Social Media, Employment and the Economy: An Update on the Current State of the Job Market” found that job growth in the US has slowed sharply from the Great Recession.
The US is the world’s largest economy with more than 6.3 million people employed in the workforce, the report said.
It found that employment has not kept pace with the pace of economic growth in recent years.
The unemployment rate, a measure of the percentage of the population without a job, rose to 8.4 percent in January, a record high for the US.
It rose to 9.4 in February and 9.7 in March.
The survey, which surveyed 1,600 US adults, found that employers have been hesitant to hire and fire people who have been actively using social media.
This means that people who may have gained the most experience and expertise on social media in recent months may be less likely to land a job.
The Pew report said that people may feel less confident in using social platforms if they are under pressure to improve their employment status.
It said:The US unemployment rate is not only higher than most developed countries, it is higher than the unemployment rate of the Great Depression in the 1930s.
It also finds that employment gains have slowed down.
Employers are less likely now to hire people who are using social channels, and more likely to let go of people who use social channels.
There are also fewer jobs available.
In the year ending in March, the number of jobs created was just over 2.4 million, down from 2.6 million in January.
The number of people without a full-time job was almost three times as high as the number in the early 2000s.
The researchers said they found little evidence of a decline in the use of online forums, social media or forums for businesses.
They said this may be due to people using these platforms for work or other purposes that are more important to them.
The study, however, found a rise in the number people who had been actively engaging in social media, such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
The use of these platforms, along with the internet’s ability to connect people across borders and regions, has been increasing since the early 1990s.
While these changes have made it easier for employers to hire, it has also made it more difficult for people to get a job and that may have contributed to the sharp decline in employment in recent times.
The American Association of University Women, which represents a third of the US workforce, released its report on Wednesday, saying that there is a lack of evidence that these changes in technology have increased employment opportunities.
“The evidence is clear that social media plays a vital role in the economy and job creation,” said the AUSW in a statement.
The AUSI has called on Congress to ensure that “social media and the internet” are used for legitimate purposes and that people are not discouraged from using these channels.
“Social media and online forums have the potential to make a huge impact on people’s daily lives and work, and they should be allowed to be used to promote jobs and businesses,” it added.
A US official said the US unemployment rates are much higher than many other developed countries and that unemployment has dropped since 2008.
But the official added that the US is still not immune from the impact of the financial crisis.
“People who have had job loss, or even lost their jobs, they can lose their homes and they can go bankrupt,” the official said.
“This is a very big problem, and it’s going to have a big impact on the economy.”
The US economy is expected to grow by about 1.4% in the second quarter of this year, which is a far cry from the 2.7% growth recorded in the third quarter of 2016.
