New Zipster features, LinkedIn integration and tighter Twitter integration

Since we launched Zipster in September 2010, we've been working hard to make it better, more integrated with social networks, and more useful. Today we are introducing new feature and tighter integration with Twitter.

With the LinkedIn integration via their API, when you view a job ad and the advertiser has an organisation profile, you will see your top five LinkedIn connections that are working or have worked at the organisation in the past. This allows you to contact your connections to learn about the organisation's culture, the advertising position, etc. More LinkedIn integration coming soon.

We are also making these enhancements to the Twitter integration starting today:
  • @ZipsterAU follows your Twitter account when you connect to Twitter with your Zipster account.
  • Job ad posted on Zipster will also be posted to your Twitter account automatically.
  • Expired or closed jobs will be removed from your Twitter account automatically.
  • Job tweet now includes three hashtags #jobs, #ICT and #IT.
We will continue to enhance Zipster with new features and functionality, and encourage you to check out the new features and let us know what you think.
