Is it possible that diaspora has a page where it asks about our education and work, and connects people with that information? We could directly be challenging social network like Linkedin thus freeing professionals from proprietary software.
Good idea, but I have a strong feeling that is not the direction the core team want to travel in. I am also looking for LinkedIn alternatives.
Indeed, the job market network is a field where there isn’t any good open source alternative. However, as bicyu said, it would change a lot the way diaspora* is used currently so I don’t think this is the way diaspora* should go. The good news though, is that as diaspora* is free software, it is totally possible to reuse its code, including the federation part, to built a professional social network. If anyone wants to do this
