Facebook is testing a new feature on the platform which may add a more professional touch to the user’s profile. Resume named section appeared on some of the user’s profile to share more detailed professional information. It seems like the social media giant is planning to use its social network database to challenge Linkedin.

Some of the Facebook users started to see the CV feature on their profile randomly and Jane Manchun Wong, a web developer from Massachusetts is among those. She shared the screenshot of the feature that she notices on her Facebook profile. With the help of feature, the users can list their professional experience and education, as well as their contact details, an image, and other information just like the one on the Linkedin account.

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.
