Today at f8, Facebook’s developer’s conference, Monster.com®, the leading job matching engine and flagship brand of Monster Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: MWW), announced that BeKnown™ – Monster’s new professional networking app on Facebook – is launching new features that make it possible for people to add professional updates such as career changes and college graduation directly to their Facebook profile.
“We’re announcing BeKnown’s Facebook integration as a new way for people to feature career updates and highlight their professional brand to help advance their career goals,” said Matt Mund, vice president of product management at Monster Worldwide. “People can now share customized activity back to Facebook specifically tailored to professional networking that goes beyond ‘liking.’ These new features give BeKnown members a better way to show a more complete story of who they are as a professional.”
Monster’s BeKnown professional networking app for Facebook is the fastest growing app of its kind on Facebook (AppData Sept. 2011). BeKnown is currently available in 19 languages in 35 countries and accessible for free via mobile apps on Android and iPhone devices.
Facebook has always made it easy to discover great things and now BeKnown makes it even easier for people to express themselves as professionals, and connect with friends and family to better express what they’re doing at work or where they’re at in their career. Through consistent and easy to understand settings on BeKnown, people remain in full control over how their activity is shared, thereby maintaining the separation of personal and professional information.
