Yesterday Facebook launched a job-board app, featuring 1.7 million listings from 5 different recruiting organizations.
This new application is the one of the products of Social Jobs Partnership that Facebook started last year with several public agencies and aggregating jobs in one place.
The first set of jobs comes from the three agencies viz. BranchOut, DirectEmployers Association, Work4Labs, Jobvite and Monster.com.
With this new move, I feel that Facebook is venturing into digital world big time and has a chance of becoming a threat to Google as well. Although this application is not generating any money directly for Facebook, but it sure can get into paid Job Listing business as well. Linkedin must watch out for sure. With such a huge database of almost 1 billion, this sure be a big success for Facebook.
