NOIDA, India - Feb. 4, 2017 - PRLog -- Social networking giant Facebook, will soon have a job opening tab on its business pages, which seems to be a direct threat to LinkedIn. It is said, that the new feature may help organisations to drive traffic to their Facebook page beyond marketing their products in the news feed.

The job postings will show up in a Jobs tab, creating a place where companies can send job seekers. Job postings will include an 'apply now' button, helping job seekers to apply for multiple jobs without typing in unnecessary information. The submitted applications will be received as a Facebook Message. This move by Facebook can be a direct threat to LinkedIn in so many ways. Not everyone has a LinkedIn profile. It has 467 million members compared to the 1.79 billion on Facebook. Many LinkedIn users just visit when they're updating their profile or are looking for a job.  But with Facebook, almost everyone has a profile and this new feature can reach the people who're not even thinking about a job, yet could be convinced to apply for the chance of a better pay.

Considering that LinkedIn has only 467 million users worldwide and is in the midst of acquisition process with Microsoft, Facebook might have a better chance to beat LinkedIn's market share in online recruitment business in the near future.
