Mashable has a write up today on a bunch of new social network startups going live.
I read the blurbs on them and most are tired retreads of current sites already in existence. What up with that?
I mean, somebody put a ton of money into building these sites; does anyone ask how different they could be from a half dozen other (and sometimes very well known) sites?
I already spewed about my desire for a Web 2.0 job and career site.
I also want a job networking site that does something else. I will call it JobShout.
It goes like this:
Bob has a job.
Bob knows about an opening at his place of employment.
Bob posts the job on JobShout.
Bob writes a review about his work, location, benefits, pay range, work conditions.
JobShout members vote the job up ("Wow, Bob, I wish I lived in Portland, I would apply there!") or down ("Bob, your job and work conditions stink. Quit!").
Most new work comes through our network.
JobShout would grow an organic network between many people, industries, etc.
JobShout would facilitate the sharing of openings between like minded people.
Build it and tell me about it when you get done.
