With Facebook at its roots, BranchOut could outgrow LinkedIn

Hmm – I hadn’t seen this yesterday before my LinkedIn/Facebook post (via Louis Gray, via Buzz)

BranchOut has been talked about for the last 6 months as a potential competitor to Linkedin but just recently I started seeing the connection requests rolling in and all the usual suspects jumping on board very much in the same way Quora has been exploding in the last week. BranchOut is essentially a professional network very similar to Linkedin that is built as an app that sits on top of Facebook and its 600 million users. From what I can see it is incredibly viral in nature and it aims to tap in to your friends’ network to provide job opportunities and candidates for people looking to hire via Facebook.
