Mark Zuckerberg And His Quest To Have It All: LinkedIn, Facebook Is Coming For You.

Uncle Mark and his Oliver Twist tendencies. After going after platforms like Periscope, Steam, Craigslist and Snapchat, Facebook, the undisputed king in the social networking space is ready to take on LinkedIn.

According to Reuters, Facebook tested a feature that would let page admins create job postings and receive applications from candidates, a move that is directly aimed at LinkedIn and Glassdoor, platforms that make revenues from job seekers and recruiters.


According to Facebook’s Spokesman:

“Based on behavior we’ve seen on Facebook, where many small businesses post about their job openings on their Page, we’re running a test for Page admins to create job postings and receive applications from candidates.”

The jobs will appear under a dedicated “Jobs” tab on Facebook and users looking to apply would have to click on the “Apply Now” button, where the application will auto-fill using information from the user’s profile.
No word on when the service might launch, though.

    I don’t think I would want to apply for a job via Facebook. Facebook is a casual platform meant for friends and family: not to reveal my private, social life to potential recruiters.

    Why don’t they try and make something new instead of copying and stealing what others have already done?? ??

    … WELL, AS MUCH AS THIS SHOULD BE A WELCOMED IDEA, I THINK IT WILL BE INFORMAL AND UNOFFICIAL FOR FACEBOOK NOT TO MAKE THIS EXCLUSIVE ON FACEBOOK FOR WORK…
