Facebook is shifting further towards classifieds with a jobs feature set to be launched on the site in just a few weeks.
The new page could provide small businesses, or even large ones, with a way to post jobs formally on their Facebook pages and accept applications through the site.
The move comes less than one month after they launched a local classifieds feature in the U.S., U.K., Australia and New Zealand for IPhone and Android users.
According to TechCrunch, Facebook’s upcoming jobs page could “muscle-in on LinkedIn’s recruiting business with ways for business Pages to promote job listings”.
“The new Jobs features could give companies another reason to drive traffic to their Facebook Page beyond marketing their products in the News Feed, while also allowing them to pay the social network to get their open position in front of more candidates”.
