Need a job? Log on to Facebook. The social network launched a jobs board with the Social Jobs Partnership app. It pulls in job listings from several services, including BranchOut, Jobvite and Monster. Facebook says half of U.S. employers are using the network during the hiring process.

Also in today's tech news roundup, Pinterest is letting existing profiles be turned into business accounts . Companies will be able to promote their content with the added benefit of verification badges and widgets for sharing.

There's a rise in malware disguised as daily deal e-mails . Don't download attachments in e-mail offers, and hover over links to check the destination before you click.

And keep your eye out for these software updates:

- A Google TV update improves voice search, the on-screen guide and mobile video sharing.

- A firmware update for Microsoft Surface gives the tablet a performance boost.

- T-Mobile is pushing out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to the Samsung Galaxy S3 .

- BlackBerry Messenger has been updated to support free voice calls over Wi-Fi.
