Has any else tried the new Facebook Social Jobs App? For an app that took 1 year of development and partnerships, I've had nothing but bad results thus far. 

Unless I am not seeing it I cannot search a specific job title, there are no filters (meaningful) to sort the results etc. After the Apple debacle I never thought Facebook would launch something so half ass. I am curious as to how the partners listed on the page feel about that. 

The bigger questions is that the partners listed on the page are in this business. How could they let something like this pass the sniff test?

This is a basic as it gets. There is no room for fail in the Job Board business. It's been around way to long to screw it up.

Agreed, Ryan. What a joke. It looks like a 16-year old budding programmer put this together in about 20 minutes. This looks like one HUGE FAIL on Facebook's part.

I think the partners listed onsite get the heat as well. It's their business that they attached to this. Hopefully it gets better but round 1 sucks.

I also agree Ryan. The job ads themselves are also a big fail. You don't need to go to Facebook to find the same old Monster job ads, but that's what they bring to the table as "innovation". Facebook boomed as people wanted a way to share pictures with friends and family. It became a way to add color and texture to one's life story. Facebook and its partners have employed zero of that in this first edition. Think of the possibilities with all of the content they have at their disposal, and you realize what a huge failure this is. It looks to me as if Facebook was either going through the motions or hasn't done its homework yet.

Curious if anyone has tested Silp..    I signed up for their beta and was told it was closed.. Now I am being offered the launch.. $250/post!!  Higher than linkedin!!! and I told them that... so they asked "what would I pay".. so I asked them "what did their beta test tell them"  Clearly they have not done their homework!!

I honestly thought Facebook was trolling their entire user population with that "result"...it looks like a screen cap from a 1995 AOL search page. They must have started to get tired of irritating their users with timeline and News Feed changes and 'updates'.

What is Slip? Do you have the URL?

That's funny, it does look like the AOL search page. It's embarrassing that they'd do that.

haha- Loved this article! With all the potential Facebook has to make an impact on the recruitment space, this doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of a disruptive tool. Where's the social data? Where are the JOBS?

What a flop this project turned out to be...
