What is Twitter? (taken from

Twitter is a real-time information network that connects you to the latest information about what you find interesting. Simply find the public streams you find most compelling and follow the conversations.

At the heart of Twitter are small bursts of information called Tweets. Each Tweet is 140 characters in length. Connected to each Tweet is a rich details pane that provides additional information, deeper context and embedded media.

You don’t have to build a web page to surf the web and you don’t have to tweet to enjoy Twitter. Whether you tweet 100 times a day or never, you still have access to the voices and information surrounding what interests you.  Retrieve up to the second information. Some people never tweet, they simply use Twitter as a way to get the latest information on their interests.


BrantJobs Facebook Page

Now you can get updated employment or volunteer postings in your Facebook timeline. Similar to our Twitter feeds, our Facebook timeline updates include the position's title and a link back to BrantJobs.  If room allows, we also include the location of the position.

What is Facebook? (taken from

Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them.

Facebook is a social networking service launched in February 2004, owned and operated by Facebook, Inc.  Users must register before using the site, after which they may create a personal profile, add other users as friends, and exchange messages, including automatic notifications when they update their profile. Additionally, users may join common-interest user groups, organized by workplace, school or college, or other characteristics, and categorize their friends into lists such as "People From Work" or "Close Friends".

Users can create profiles with photos, lists of personal interests, contact information, and other personal information. Users can communicate with friends and other users through private or public messages and a chat feature. They can also create and join interest groups and "like pages", some of which are maintained by organizations as a means of advertising.


BrantJobs RSS Stream

With the BrantJobs RSS Stream you can easily reivew the latest poistions in your favourite email client, web browser, or feed reader (provided they are capable of receiving RSS data).  The RSS Stream makes it much easier to access new postings anywhere you are.  

What is RSS? (taken from

RSS (often dubbed Really Simple Syndication) is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format. An RSS document (which is called a "feed", "web feed", or "channel") includes full or summarized text, plus other data such as publishing dates and authorship.

A standardized file format allows the information to be published once and viewed by many different programs. They benefit readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place.

RSS feeds can be read using software called an "RSS reader", "feed reader", or "aggregator", which can be web-based, desktop-based, or mobile-device-based. The user subscribes to a feed by entering into the reader the feed's URI or by clicking a feed icon in a web browser that initiates the subscription process. The RSS reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new work, downloads any updates that it finds, and provides a user interface to monitor and read the feeds. RSS allows users to avoid manually inspecting all of the websites they are interested in, and instead subscribe to websites such that all new content is pushed onto their browsers when it becomes available.
