1. Facebook takes to recruitment with LinkedIn-like résumé feature

It's no secret that Facebook would be happy to take a chunk of LinkedIn's professional user base, and a recently surfaced screenshot suggests the social network is ready to do just that. Facebook's apparently working on a way for users to build and maintain a resume or CV on their profiles that outlines their education, experience, contact information, and specific projects.

Users can already include education and work history in their profiles, but this is the first time a test appears to go as far as including a "resume" section. No word on whether this means such a capability will roll out to all users, but we don't have a reason to think otherwise.
