Staff Management, Hiring Procedures and Legal Terms in Times of Social Media

Hiring procedures have dramatically changed over the past couple of years.

And as they’ve shown us time and time again over the past few years, there comes a time when you have to go big on infrastructure or go home.

That, Houston told me, is a big reason Dropbox bought collaboration startup Cove, the founders of which played major roles in building out some of Facebook’s big features while they were there, from 2005 through 2010.

Right now, Houston said Dropbox relies on Amazon Web Services (s amzn) for storing users’ files, but it also manages its own 1,200-plus server infrastructure that handles pretty much everything else…
