The Wall Street Journal recently reported that companies are seeking to use Facebook’s 750-million user base to recruit new employees, potentially threatening LinkedIn’s dominance in online professional networking.
But it’s not just the keepers of LinkedIn’s job boards that ought to be biting their nails, according to Ere.net. Facebook is going to destroy LinkedIn altogether, predicts writer Jody Ordioni.
The Journal, which Ordioni quotes, states that “Facebook hires account for less than 1% of the total hires companies are making. But if current growth trends continue, Facebook could rival traditional job boards in 2012.”
