workplace by facebook

Facebook has already become more than a way of communication with people on the Web. Nevertheless, the majority of companies forbid their employees to use social networks including Facebook in the workplace because it distracts them from the working process. That’s why it was decided to develop a new version of Facebook whose goal was to connect coworkers and help to achieve business goals. First, the new version was tested with a few companies a year ago.

Today, more than a thousand organizations use Facebook Workplace as an effective tool for business purposes. More than 100,000 groups have been created during the last year. Workplace is used in many countries all over the world including the USA, France, the UK, Norway and India. Nowadays, Workplace is available for any company that wants to use it for its business needs.

The Perfect Solution for Everybody


Workplace is not a good solution for companies whose employees are working all in one office. The current work often predetermines that an employee can be on the road, having a meeting with a partner or a client or be doing some other work which requires them being out of the working place. That’s why the usage of Workplace will significantly improve the quality of work because all employees can be always in touch whenever they are. The only thing they need is their mobile phone and Internet connection.

Workplace is used by various types of companies. For example, shipping companies use it to establish contact with crews which are in the sea. Banks use it instead of fax machines and newsletters, it allows them to share updates and news with distributed bank branches. Workplace offers the biggest advantage to multinational companies whose employees work worldwide. Due to this tool, the company is always in touch with everyone.

The Best Features and Improvements

The developers of Workplace took the best features from Facebook and implemented them into Workplace. For example, the users of Workplace can share in groups, they can stream in real time or search for trend posts. For employees, it means that they can be in touch with their colleagues from any corner of the world, have chat in real time or follow the Facebook presentation of the CEO.

Workplace also provides some beneficial features for companies such as dashboard with analytics, where they can view the detailed statistics, or the opportunity to identify providers which enable companies to integrate Workplace in their IT system much easier.

Moreover, Facebook presents another feature which allows employees from different companies work together in a safe and secure way. This feature is now in a testing mode, but soon it will be available for all customers.

Workplace Partner Program

Facebook introduces a new feature whose goal is to help companies get started with Workplace. The new Workplace Partner Program unites professional services and technologies which will cooperate with Facebook in order to make Workplace available and more useful for bigger number of companies around the world. For companies, it means the new ways of accessing Workplace; they will be able to work directly with the approved partners who will help to adapt the company’s system to Workplace.

Besides, there is a significant change in pricing policy. Now, a company pays for the product only when their employees use Workplace.

The mission of Workplace is not to create the closed environment for a company within a certain location. On the contrary, at Facebook, they want to turn Workplace into an effective tool which makes organizations stronger and more productive. Its goal is to unite companies and employees and make their communication easy and borderless.
