Facebook Invents LinkedIn

It's no secret that Facebook wants to be the only place you spend your time online, putting a ridiculous amount of work into it as well. Now, tough, it's invented a brand new feature for job hunters, letting them store their CVs on Facebook to aid in their quest for a new career. Basically, Facebook has just ripped off LinkedIn and added it to its already-bloated feature set.

This revelation comes from a tweet from The Next Web's Matt Navarra, showcasing a fairly straightforward feature where people can add their employment history in more detail than what's currently available on the platform.

As anyone with a Facebook account already knows, the site already lets you list a basic employment history on your profile. The new feature, however, seems to be a way of formatting it more professional way. Presumably there will also be areas to add skills, references, and all that other stuff you can get if you sign up the LinkedIn right now.

Business Insider reports that Facebook has confirmed the feature is being tested, though it hasn't specified when it'll start rolling out to users. Telling the site:

“At Facebook, we’re always building and testing new products and services. We’re currently testing a work histories feature to continue to help people find and businesses hire for jobs on Facebook.”

All I can say about this new is:
