Facebook planning social network platform for offices

Posted on by Offices.org.uk

SOCIAL network giant Facebook is reported to be developing a new version of the site to be used in workplaces.

“Facebook at work” will apparently offer a mix of business networking and workplace collaboration tools which pitch it against established platforms such as LinkedIn, Yammer, Slack and Google Docs.

While Facebook haven’t publicly commented on the project, the Financial Times has reported that the system is in development and will allow users to create groups, chat and share projects and files.

Facebook, founded by Mark Zuckerberg, has over 1.3 billion registered users although many workplaces don’t allow the site, and other social networks, to be accessed through corporate networks.
