Facebook testing a CV feature

18 Octobre 2017

Facebook is now trialling a CV feature, according to screenshots posted on social media - a move that would put it in direct competition with professional social network LinkedIn.

The Next Web's Matt Navarra posted screenshots of the new feature, which included information about users' professional experience and education.

It appears Facebook has decided which company's features it is going to replicate next on its juggernaut social media website.

Of course, it's already possible for people to list their job history and education on Facebook.

However, a major question that is pointed out in the Engadget report is whether users really want a resume feature added to their Facebook profile?

Still, the deal's passage is far from sure, because it would need the support of conservative Republican lawmakers in the House. In a nod to Republicans, it would give states limited new flexibility to offer cheaper, less generous health plans.

Facebook has confirmed that the feature is in testing, but as usual there's no confirmation if the feature will eventually be rolled out to all users. Additionally, users can also add their contact details, an image and other relevant information.

It's not clear how many people now have access to the resume feature, or what Facebook's ultimate intentions are here.

"At Facebook, we're always building and testing new products and services. We're now testing a work histories feature to continue to help people find, and businesses hire, for jobs on Facebook". From the looks of it, Facebook seems to have made it very simple for users to edit and add entries to their CV.

For example, last year, Facebook launched its Facebook at Work feature, now called Workplace.

Given Facebook's reputation for trying to crush potential rivals, that ought to make LinkedIn nervous.
