I guess the innovation is that it sends your Facebook data to employers, so they can try to figure out what type of person you are from the crap you are likely to buy. For all innovation on the data-selling side, I'd hope for a user interface that doesn't suck.

Bad idea!!!

LinkedIn is where I pretend like I'm a decent person.
