BraveNewTalent, the social recruiting website, has launched a Facebook App that allows users to unlock the power of their personal networks to help them find a job and build relationships with potential future employers.

Users can choose to follow employers without revealing the personal information and images they have on Facebook. "We have built the application with the extra care of making sure users' Facebook profiles will not be exposed to employers in any way," said Lucian Tarnowski, CEO and founder of BraveNewTalent. "Instead, we are bringing together the best of both worlds: users can see where their friends work, share job opportunities and keep up with all the social media content from their employers. But they keep their professional profiles on, where they join employers' talent communities in order to showcase their skills in a professional manner."

BraveNewTalent Facebook App features:

Follow employers: Users find and follow employers that they want to learn more about and stay up-to-date with their news, tweets, blogs, videos and of course latest job opportunities.

Use your network: Users can see where their friends are working, which helps them expand their network of professional connections in order to find a job.

Extend your network: Users get to see where friends of friends are working and if they're interested in that particular employer they can ask for an introduction.

Share jobs with friends: Any Facebook user is able to share job opportunities with their friends and invite others to come join their network so they can share jobs too.

Search for jobs: Users have the ability to browse for job opportunities, linking them directly to the posting, either on BraveNewTalent or straight to the source.

Build a professional profile on BraveNewTalent: Allows users to manage their professional information and how they are presented through their online profile on, keeping their professional and personal lives apart.
