The Innovate CV and Jibe Job Apps on Facebook
Innovate CV and Jibe are two of the job apps that have developed ways to integrate with Facebook to help job seekers network. Facebook was designed strictly as a social media site, not as a professional networking site, so these tools help job seekers add that functionality.

Jibe job app with Facebook
Jibe is an experimental job board and recruiting tool empowered by social media. First, you connect your LinkedIn and Facebook accounts to your Jibe account; then you can see job listings based on who you know. Jibe is different from traditional job boards in that you can actually apply to the job on Jibe without having to leave the site.
Jibe sends the hiring manager your résumé and a filled-out application that includes your social media profiles with who you know.
Jibe also shows you some interesting tidbits about your network, including which industries are represented, what the most common job titles are amongst your friends, and even the unemployment rate of your network as it compares with the national average. Jibe is a great launching-off point for discovering opportunities and for leveraging your network to find out more about target companies.
