BeKnown App: Turn Facebook Into Your Professional Network
Did you ever see a job on Monster that you wanted to apply for, then wonder if you know anyone at the place that’s hiring? This is the power of professional networking. It’s what Monster’s mobile BeKnown
app for Facebook is all about.
BeKnown lets you find and connect with friends or contacts from all sorts of sources, not just Facebook. The app turns these people into professional contacts. They don’t get to see your personal Facebook stuff unless you want them to. This privacy means you can create and maintain a distinctly professional image.
Retain all your work and job search contacts in once convenient place. With BeKnown you can invite people from other social networks beyond your existing Facebook friends. You can add contacts to BeKnown without having to become their Facebook friends.
You’ll need a free Facebook account to get started. Then download BeKnown for mobile. It lets you check messages from people in your professional network, review their profiles in detail, and see what they’ve written about their work history (now or in the past).
Make connections on the fly with BeKnown, when out for meals, at events, anywhere. But first select the version that’s right for you: Monster’s BeKnown mobile Facebook app for IPhone, IPad, or Android.
Stay Mobile - Check For Updates Regularly
Monster will be updating its mobile apps ongoingly. We’ll be adding features, fixing any bugs that might have snuck in, and introducing brand new apps to help you get the job you deserve.
