It's not often you get a job offer from Mark Zuckerburg. It's even rarer to turn it down.

Columbus resident Jeff Schumann rejected an offer to lead Facebook at Work, the social network's new platform for internal employee communication, in order to focus on an enterprise social network of his own.

In 2014, Schumann along with Columbus' Matt Huber, Shawn Domer and James Tsai began a year's worth of work building Feedcop, which regulates all conversations a company's employees have on Yammer-Microsoft's social platform for enterprises. By 2015, the platform was launched and it boasts 330,000 licensees to date. Prices range from $5 to $30 a year per employee, depending on the size of client companies.

Customers configure Feedcop for personalization, but its abilities include finding keywords related to sexual harassment and terrorism, monitoring files shared to ensure data such as customers' personal information isn't compromised-and soon scanning images messaged.

Feedcop has plans to also filter more enterprise social networks, such as Slack and Facebook at Work. But, with fewer than ten employees, a hiring blitz is necessary to meet this goal. Thanks to a Series A fundraising round the team is in the midst of closing, they expect millions of dollars to allow them to hire staff and find Columbus office space.

In mid-September, Feedcop will undergo rebranding and change its name to Wiretap as the team launches publicity efforts. More information on the startup is available at feedcop.com.
