Not so long ago, Facebook was primarily about socializing with friends; the network wasn’t a good place to do career networking. Today, that’s no longer the case. In fact, with more than 25 million Facebook users, BranchOut is LinkedIn’s biggest competitor. In some ways it’s better than LinkedIn.
For example, with BranchOut you don’t need to build your network one person at a time. Instead, the app automatically connects you with your existing Facebook contacts. It’s a good tool for finding a job, too, as it has about 3 million job listings, lets you see the companies where your friends work, and identifies how many job openings are available at those organizations.
As a social network, BranchOut displays your friends’ profile information, including their work histories. So if you all don’t want to share that level of detail, BranchOut may not be for you.
