I know you can post jobs to Facebook but haven't explored it yet. Has anyone tried this and, if so, have you had any success with it?!

I'm not a recruiter but if I were looking for a job Facebook is probably the last place I'd look.

Facebook,  what a waste of a life.

If you are looking for a job why would ANYONE put it on Facebook?  You would only get people who would spend their working day "playing" on Facebook when they should be working!

I'm sure people do waste working time on Facebook when they should be working but it has it's good sides too.

I think its too expensive for what it is, 50 a week and 59p a click. People who use facebook don't really pay much attention to the ads anyway.

you can totally post your job ads on facebook. I know that some only use it for playing facebook games and all that but it's never general. Some also take advantage of the social network to build their own websites and facebook is one useful way to do that.

It's not "totally" a waste of time. I have family in different parts of the world and it's a great way to share photos with them.

I refer the honourable gentleman to the reply I gave some moments ago.

What about e mail?

No need for FACEBOOK.

If I want to share a whole bunch of photo's it's far far easier to create a photo album on Facebook than it is to individually email all of these to all of my friends and family.

Facebook can be a huge waste of time but taken in moderation - like all things that are addictive - it can have it's uses. Like our HireScores.com Facebook page for example  Grin.

I would not click on a job advertised on facebook but then I try not to click on internet adverts so maybe it's worth a try.

I can see the value of twitter (used properly) for recruiting but facebook just feels too, well, social.  I use it to keep in contact with people I would otherwise have lost contact with.  On a personal level I think it's great.  I did block it at work though, as jasper said, people just sit there on facebook ALL DAY!

I get the feeling Jasper9 is very much anti-facebook!

I am not sure whether it is necessarily a complete waste of time. I suppose it might depend on the type of individual you are targetting. If, for example, you are recruiting a social media executive, Facebook would surely be one of the first places to start?!

I don't think the baby can be thrown out with the bathwater. Nothing is "all bad" and nothing is "all good"/ Facebook has it's good things and it's bad.
