Is Facebook about to challenge LinkedIn?

‘This is more suited for Facebook, not here’ – a comment that often crops up on LinkedIn posts, indicating the fine line between professional networking website and social media.

However, could Facebook itself, be moving into the recruitment space? In its latest new feat, Facebook is testing a feature that lets users create CVs, also deemed as ‘work histories’ and share them privately on the site. “At Facebook, we’re always building and testing new products and services,” a Facebook spokesperson told TechCrunch. “We’re currently testing a work histories feature to continue to help people find and businesses hire for jobs on Facebook.”

    Personally, I prefer the separation of personal and professional.

    The culture of Facebook is primarily a platform for personal connections of family and friends. There is a lot of drama and too many advertisements. I don’t use Facebook for business or acquaintances.

    I love the professional culture, career development and networking opportunities LinkedIn provides.

    Keeping personal and professional lives separate is what I prefer.

    I think that it will give Linkedin a run for it's money. People may be a bit more likely to engage.
