Facebook's (FB +11.8%) jobs app is nothing for LinkedIn (LNKD -0.9%) to be worried about, says BI's Owen Thomas after giving it a spin. Whereas LinkedIn provides a platform for finding candidates (along with job listings), Facebook's product is at heart a jobs search engine displaying listings already on Monster (MWW) and other sites. Thomas adds a search for San Francisco jobs turned up listings for positions in India. VentureBeat's Jolie O'Dell calls the app "barely functional."
