Facebook might the sleeping giant of Recruitment

Network of peers versus a business network
Also from the same article, Laurel Papworth a Social Educuator at University of Sydney said, she didn’t believe that jobseekers would necessairly prefer Facebook over LinkedIn, however she said “Jobseekers might be more attracted to a vacancy seen on Facebook as it would more likely be channelled through a network of peers versus a business network.”

Survey of 12,000 Australians
An online survey by 12,000 Australians by Recruitment Company Randstad found 34% were using Social Media to find work.
Of the approximate 4,000 using Social Media, 61% said they used Facebook and 45% used LinkedIn.
