BranchOut debuted in 2010 on Facebook as a free application for professional social networking and job searching. Today, it's Facebook's largest application dedicated to the cause, the company says.
Once you add the BranchOut app to your Facebook account, you fill out a professional profile with your specialties, a summary of your work, a photo and a list of your skills. You can also ask for "endorsements"—or recommendations—and add Facebook friends you want to connect with on a professional level. You can also search for jobs and people from within the app.
