We know that finding the right talent can be a challenge. 40% of US small businesses report that filling jobs was harder than they expected, which is surprising when you consider that these small businesses also employ nearly half of the country’s workforce.
We’re focused on building new ways to help make it easier for businesses to interact with the over 1 billion people visiting Pages every month. Businesses and individuals already use Facebook to fill and find jobs, so we’re rolling out new features that allow job posting and application directly on Facebook.

The rollout started in the USA and will be launch in Australia and rest of the world soon. A few months ago Facebook launch it’s marketplace, and now it’s growing faster. Websites like gumtree.com.au and eBay are getting a direct hit from the Facebook marketplace.
