Recruiting on Facebook

I don’t really use Facebook, as I prefer to keep my social network pretty small.  Since I’m somewhat removed from the action, I often wonder if there are opportunities to recruit on Facebook.

Usually I can locate passive candidates pretty readily via LinkedIn, networking, and traditional headhunting, but I’ve been told Facebook can be a decent place to find candidates.  Perhaps by targeting employees of companies, or fans of certain local businesses (depending on the required qualifications) would work on Facebook.  I’ve done quite a bit of recruitment advertising on Facebook, and the targeting capabilities there are fantastic, but in terms of Facebook as a networking tool for passive candidates, I don’t see a ton of value.  If you think I am missing a huge talent pool, please let me know!
