TWEETMYJOBS has an application called Who Do You Know that’s available as a Facebook app. It utilizes information from the job seeker’s social profile to check to see if there are any personal connections between them and the company. If there is, the employer can request a referral. This increases the possibility of the applicant being considered for a position and decreases the time needed to fill an opening.
