"We want to help people find those jobs and help local businesses hire the right people", Alex Himel, vice president of local at Facebook, wrote in an announcement. Conveniently, this also lays out a new foundation for lucrative business.

Himel declined to specify to AFP how many job postings were listed with Facebook.

Facebook is rolling out its job application feature, which was previously only available in the USA and Canada, to over 40 countries. Market research company Morning Consult surveyed 5,000 adults in the US and found that one in four had either searched for or found a job using Facebook. It's kind of like LinkedIn, but applied to your Facebook network.

The social network giant, Facebook previously rolled out an astounding application for the users hunting for jobs.
