Professional Reference Hub in Beta
ONLINE PRIVACYApril 6, 2010
A new Web site designed to help employers find out more about job candidates has some concerned about its potential for damaging professional reputations, reports San Diego Entertainer. Currently in beta and only accessible through Facebook, the Unvarnished site lets individuals create profiles of themselves or someone else. Other users can then build upon the profiles anonymously, adding feedback on professional performance. Once created, the profiles cannot be removed, the report states. Critics say the site could damage the professional patinas of "unsuspecting individuals."
