Now Facebook has decided to BranchOut, LinkedIn needs to Worry

January 12, 2011

BranchOut is a jobs and career networking feature built on Facebook and looks set to take on LinkedIn as the social media network for professionals.

Facebook has always been about connecting with friends on a social level. Unfortunately some employers have used this information to screen job applicants and, in some cases, of people have lost their jobs for comments made about their superiors or the company they work for.

BranchOut aims to be your professional profile on Facebook, meaning you can have both your personal life and professional life on one platform.

Not only does BranchOut draw on the connections made through Facebook, it can also import information from LinkedIn. All you have to do to set up your profile is click one button and it imports your LinkedIn profile and formats it perfectly into one simple CV.

While it remains to be seen how harmoniously work and play can co-exist, BranchOut is likely to grow very big, very quickly.
