Facebook will help you to find a job

5Facebook launched a new application. It will help to find a job. This new feature helps to search job by location, by branch of it and by skills, which are necessary for it. There are more than 1.7 million vacant positions now.

This new application will help Facebook to challenge Linkedln, the prominent social network for business communication. Linkedln was created specially for it, but Facebook has a big advantage: a great attendance.  The attendance of Linkedln is only 187 thousand users. The attendance of Facebook is five times bigger.

Prominent aggregating agents BranchOut, DirectEmployers Association, Work4Labs, Jobvite and Monster.com helped to develop this application. It was not announced, how will Facebook monetize this new application. Nevertheless, it won’t be the main resource of their income. By the way, Linkedln receives 55% of their income by publishing the paid advertisements about vacant positions.
