Company Pages Weekly News

06/17/2013 to 06/21/2013



What's going on?

The API of Twitter has evolved and the service "Feed twitter" in the section "MORE COMPANY NEWS..." in the panorama is no more ok.


  1. There is no refresh anymore
  2. It is impossible to attach a twitter-account from now on


  1. It is not the first time that the API evolves and the set of features decreases.
  2. It will cost around 2 weeks of dev to fix it because they changed everything and maybe just for a couple of months... again.

So we remove the twitter feed in the section "MORE COMPANY NEWS..." in the panorama" for the Roll-out of july the 2nd.


An emailing wil be sent to administrators of all company pages with the twitter feed activated (paid and free).

  • We wil inform and explain why we switch this service off
  • We will promote the RSS feed as a solution
  • And sooner a brand new header wil be released

Focus on the feature Application

In July, members of Viadeo will be able to do an application directly on Company pages.

There are two options:

1st option

The company has a corporate website which enables people to apply on it.

The administrator of the Company Page fills the administration part with the URL of the website.

On click on "Candidature Spontanée", the member of Viadeo will be redirected to the corporate website of the company.

2nd option

The company does not have a corporate website.

The administrator of the Company Page fills the administration part with an e-mail address.

On click on "Candidature Spontanée", the member of Viadeo will be able to apply with his/her profile ant to attach files: Cover Letter, Resume, portfolio, etc. (description and screenshots below)
