DO YOU KNOW THAT WE MIGHT NOW FIND OUR NEXT EMPLOYEE OR JOB ON FB?
Facebook is now making the comprehensive knowledge of its users available to employers looking to hire help. Only available in US and Canada at the moment, where hiring managers can contact potential employees.
Digital platforms are increasingly incorporated into marketing plans and everyday life, also an essential tool for companies to communicate and reach out for consumers.
Even though Facebook released the platform for firms to attract employees and for consumers to look for jobs, are people gonna use it?
It is interesting to think about how much companies would be able to see on my Facebook profile, just photos and posts that I open publicly? Or all the pages I follow and like, music I listen to and my connections to others?

Yes, consumers are now engaging more with digital and online tools, such as online shopping, asking for help online rather than calling up the company and wait for an hour for a respond, comparing prices of different products online etc. Because customers are abondoning the old traditional methods of shopping for example, many companies have opened up website and online shopping in order to chase up the fast-shifting pace of customers. If you do not have an online website for your company, and there are few competitors selling similar products as your company, consumers would have a big change of purchasing from those stores other than yours, just because consumers nowadays wanted things to be convenience and fast!
You, bring along your copy of resume, show up at an appointment time to meet with the hiring managers of the company, being asked questions by the managers, introduced yourself and basically talk about what you can do for the company, that is the traditional way of applying for a job. Companies choose to meet with the interviews because they want to see if he/she is appropriate, not only skills, education but also how your dress and how you look.
But when digital platforms are becoming a more common tools for consumers, Facebook’s new platform of hiring managers can choose to contact the potential employees may later become widely used. Because managers can have a glance about the employee’s profile and resume online before conducting an actual interview, which would reduce their time of interviewing employees one by one.
