Facebook allows you to network with personal and professional acquaintances.

Facebook allows you to network with personal and professional acquaintances.

In addition to using Facebook to alert your friends about your weekend plans and vacation pictures, you can keep people in the loop about your current employers and job title. Facebook also allows you to mention specific projects that you have worked on and co-workers who are also on Facebook. Like any other aspect of your profile, your job title may be visible to everyone or made more private through the site's privacy settings.

1

Click the "Edit My Profile" link located in the upper-left corner of the Facebook homepage, located just under the thumbnail of your profile picture. Alternatively, click the "Edit Profile" icon in the upper-right corner of your personal profile.

2

Click the "Education and Work" tab in the left column of the screen.

3

Type the name of your employer in the "Where have you worked?" field at the top of the screen. If you previously listed your employer on your page, click the "Edit" link to the right of your employer's name.

4

Type your job title into the "Position" field. As you begin to type, a list of possible matches for your entry will appear. Either click a matching job title or continue typing to create a different one.

5

Click "Save Changes" at the bottom of the employer's section to finalize the addition to your profile.
