  1. What is the main aim of Hollaroo – I’m not sure this explains exactly what it does and how??

  2. It’s essentially a company’s own social network, specifically for recruiting and creating a talent pool and creating a referral scheme. Users set up a profile and can then take part in groups and view jobs. The odd thing is it doesn’t really allow for networking between users, as you can’t see who other people are, unless they are a recruiter. I feel it is like Tribepad, but with fewer features and less experience with the Talent Pipelines aspect.
