Charlie Ryan talks about the new Facebook feature:

“Is this new? I appreciate it might be for facebook, but isn’t this something LinkedIn have been doing for years? I guess the biggest question is will it be utilised? Perhaps if you know someone and they have an opportunity for you, maybe. But, we are generally 6 people removed from the individual we eventually get the job or the opportunity from, so they won’t have had access to this anyway, as we won’t have known to “allow” them to view. I think there are plenty of platforms out there for job hunters without facebook muddying the waters of where businesses tend to go to find good candidates, especially as facebook is always further down the line for them and to be honest even then, it is a personality check it is being used for not the work history.”
