Monster.com, a job-search and help-wanted website with much of its operations in Maynard, said it has launched an app that’s designed to allow Facebook users to establish a professional network on Facebook, the social media platform.
In a statement, the company’s global CIO and head of product Darko Dejanovic said: “BeKnown answers the need and challenge in the marketplace for people to build their professional networks on Facebook while keeping personal and work-related contacts and content completely separate. An estimated 700 million people globally live their lives through Facebook, and 97 percent of the Fortune 500 companies turn to Monster to find talent. BeKnown now gives people and companies the ability to utilize that vast network for professional gain by tapping into the power of Monster and Facebook.”
Monster and its parent, Monster Worldwide Inc. have business relationships with many media companies including The New York Times Co., parent of The Boston Globe and Boston.com.
