Facebook has been somewhat off limits for recruiting, but imagine the possibilities.

Corporate recruiting teams and staffing agencies pay big bucks to send LinkedIn InMails or uncover a candidate’s active email address. However, with Facebook’s recent announcement of getting into the recruiting business, this may change. It is unclear if adding job posting functionality to Facebook Pages will change the rules of engagement.
Facebook is setting a claim for the local job market. With 467 million professional profiles globally, LinkedIn does not have a strong footprint with small businesses and hourly workers.
