While some companies have been banning the use of social networking website Facebook, one British online job site is making the most of it.

Jobtonic’s Facebook add-on, the refer-o-matic, allows users to view jobs and make referrals with the chance of being rewarded with up to $4,700. The application is free to use and available to all users.

"Facebook is the social networking site of choice for those looking to keep in touch with friends and past colleagues. By embedding our job vacancies on the site with this application, we ensure that our users have easy access to them, giving them more opportunities to refer jobs to friends and make some money if their friends take the job," said Jobtronic general manager Nick Goldstein.
