  • 6. “For a long time, LinkedIn has been where people go for jobs, and Facebook has been where people go for their friends,” said Tim Besse, a Glassdoor co-founder and the site’schief marketing officer, “but at the end of the day, I’d be happy to use my mom or a friend to find out more about a company. Thinking they’re totally separate isn’t reality.”
