About Identified

Using Facebook data, Identified lets companies organize and rank candidates, and lets candidates see how they are ranked by companies. Identified analyzes the work history, education, and demographic data of 247 million Facebook users, and tracks the hiring behaviors of thousands of companies to produce an Identified Score for people, companies, and schools. Over 2 million professionals and corporations access Identified Scores to evaluate career opportunities and make hiring decisions. Founded in 2010 and headquartered in San Francisco, Identified is the largest database of professional information based on Facebook.

Identified was conceived as a data research initiative at Stanford University’s MBA and Engineer programs by Brendan Wallace and Adeyemi Ajao and grew virally across campus, signing up 80 percent of the university in just one week before being shut down by administration. Subsequently, Identified raised $5.5M from Innovation Endeavors, Draper Fisher Jurvetson’s Tim Draper, Bill Draper  and others. For more information and to find out your Identified Score, visit
