Facebook at Work

Sooner or later it should have happened – the biggest social platform is about to introduce Facebook at work. Being genuinely honest the social giantĀ started to talk about business inclined Facebook 5 years ago and bunch of companies have been using the closed beta version for over a year. However now, according to rumours, the platform is ready to be released.

Presumably Facebook at work gives the majority of regular Facebook features, but rather aim to connect co-workers in one place. The interface is going to be the same: with likes, news feed, messenger etc. However some differences will appear – for instance paying Candy Crush is impossible šŸ™ User will be able to have to profiles simultaneously – regular and working (in different applications though).

Since there is lack of relevant info so far, I would guess the following:

  1. This network is going to be solely professional: business posts, news and pics.
  2. Additional tools may be provided for specific fee (analysis and technical instruments)
  3. Discorage workers to use Facebook in a working place was not the main purpose. The main purpose is to create business community.
  4. Typical user can’t create a Facebook at Work profile unless his employee bought a subscription (access, package or else)
  5. Head Hunting agencies will not be present (at least in the first place) and I believe Facebook at Work will not be transformed into head hunting tool.

I have a faith in this project largely due to Facebook popularity.

One thought on “Facebook at Work

    Well I was always against using FB at work. I don’t add my coworkers as frends and I have blocked profile for strangers. I think that this is much more dangerous cause people can get even more addicted to it. Also giving all company’s communication to some social media platform instead of secured intranet communication seems to be very odd for me.
