However, Facebook users already have the option to mention their professional history and educational details. But having a separate professional looking package to exhibit the experience details will catch the attention of potential employers. The resume feature enables the user to mention detailed job experience and education information. User can add the specific date or time or period they spent on a project or over a job role in a company( joining and leaving date).

The functionality is still under the testing by Facebook and available to a limited number of users chosen randomly. The company always tests its new feature with random users to know in and out of it before enrolling to the wider audience. For now, the screenshot confirms that the social media giant is all set to enter the professional sector. Adding detailed resumes in Facebook profile definitely going to affect the  Linkedin’s business as Facebook has a much bigger network than Microsoft's own professional social platform.
