Do employers check social media accounts of those who are applying to their company?

There has been discussion over the years that employers check the social media pages of potential employees. Is this true? How wary should one be when posting online, even if the posts are private (between friends)? #job-search #social-media #background-checks

Since it is too late to find internships, how else can I make my summer more "enriching?"
