Facebook is taking over the world…literally. During last week’s #RRchat, we talked about how Facebook recently expanded into the photo sphere by purchasing Instagram. Now, the social media giant is “branching out” to reach a more professional audience with BranchOut, a professional networking app. Similar to LinkedIn, the new app allows you to find out which companies your friends work for and find connections in your career field, connecting you digitally to hundreds of thousands of professionals. (Maybe the six degrees of separation theory isn’t so far off after all.)
Join us for #RRchat on Friday from 3-4 p.m. Pacific Time (or until we run out of things to say) to discuss BranchOut, Facebook’s plans for going public and more. Plus, get the inside scoop on open positions in the coolest, most creative full-service advertising agency around. Who, you ask? Why, R&R Partners of course!
Check out the #RRchat questions ahead of time to come prepared for a low-key discussion on Friday. Talk to you soon!
1. Facebook targets May 17th for IPO date. Will you buy shares in Facebook? Why or why not?
2. Facebook’s app BranchOut encourages professional networking, similar to LinkedIn. Will you use your personal Facebook page to connect with professionals for job opportunities and professional networking?
3. We post open positions to two of the largest social media platforms for job searching – Twitter & LinkedIn. What social sites have you heard people using to find a job?
Don’t forget to follow @RRPartners, and use the hashtag #RRchat to join the conversation. See you on Friday at 3 p.m. Pacific Time!
