oDesk is proud to announce its first integration with Facebook Connect! oDesk providers and buyers can now tap their social networks for locating candidates for jobs posted on oDesk, promoting your own work skills, and creating a verifiable online work presence. With Facebook Connect on oDesk, you’re in control to promote yourself and your company. You decide what you want to showcase on your Facebook feed – we won’t share your oDesk information without your approval. Activate Facebook Connect on your account now!

What can buyers share?

  • Job postings: The key to a successful job is having qualified providers to choose from during the hiring process. Starting today, you can share your job listings on Facebook with your friends and colleagues. Why not use your trusted social network to find even more great providers? Just choose ‘Share on Facebook’ during the job posting process – we’ll then walk you through how to share your listings. But don’t worry, we’ll never share anything without letting you know first.
  • Profile updates: Know someone who might want to work for you? Your Facebook profile will reflect your ability to provide professional opportunities by sharing updates to your oDesk profile with your existing Facebook friends.

What can providers share?

  • Test results: Did you ace a skill test on oDesk? Do you want people to know that you are the right person to hire? You can already embed your test results on a page outside oDesk, but now you can also share your test results with your existing network of friends and colleagues on Facebook. So go ahead – show off your superb qualifications!
  • Profile updates: Know someone who could use your services? Make your Facebook profile promote your professional skills and work history by sharing updates to your oDesk profile with friends and colleagues
