Jobster Launches Career Networking Application on Facebook® Platform

SAN FRANCISCO--(Collegiate Presswire - May 24, 2007) - Jobster, Inc., today announced it has extended the Facebook Career Center powered by Jobster with Facebook Platform. Jobster's career networking and job search application connects Facebook users with people, information, and opportunities to start or further their careers.

"This innovation by Facebook marks a clear leap forward in how people interact online," said Jobster CEO Jason Goldberg. "We can now help Facebook users further their careers in a much more seamless way."

"Facebook Platform creates an ecosystem for developers to build applications that integrate deeply into Facebook and use its social graph," said Mark Zuckerberg, founder and CEO of Facebook. "By enabling developers to make applications within Facebook, we're working together to create a better utility for millions of people."

With Facebook Platform, Jobster now lets Facebook users tag themselves and their friends with words that describe their skills and experience. Jobster then suggests jobs that match those tags.

Facebook is a social utility that offers an efficient way for people to stay connected with their friends and the people around them. Facebook users communicate and share information through the social graph, the network of connections and relationships between people. With more than 24 million active users, Facebook is the sixth-most trafficked website in the United States.

Facebook today launched Facebook Platform, a development platform that enables companies and engineers to integrate with Facebook and gain access to millions of users. More than 50 percent of Facebook users return to the site each day, providing unparalleled distribution potential for applications and the opportunity to build a business that is highly relevant to people's lives.
