Put it on my Tab
With more and more job seekers and business professionals using Facebook to network, build and nurture relationships online. Many of us are concerned about the blurred lines between business and pleasure. I appreciate that many people want to keep their personal life separate from business. However very often our friends (no matter how close they may be) do not fully understand what we do for a living. Without invading our friends personal space, I have an idea that can keep your Facebook page social and non business orientated, while also offering a window into the professional you. The idea? Simple – adding a LinkedIn Tab to your Facebook profile. Here is a quick video how to do it.
Finally, for those who want to network on Facebook another application that maybe worth looking at is BranchOut. It allows you to expand your career network through all of your friends on Facebook. You can search by Company Name to see all your friends that work there or did in the past. You can also see all of their friends that work there. However beware this application asks to access a lot of privacy settings and I am sure will have some serious teething problems before it starts to rival the likes of LinkedIn.
