Coming Soon: Facebook at Work
November 25, 2014
A recent article in the Financial Times suggests Facebook is currently testing a new site, Facebook at Work. But most of us are already using Facebook at work, so what gives?
Here’s what we currently know about the new platform:
- Your Facebook for Work profile is entirely separate from your personal Facebook social account(s); there’s no cross-pollination between users’ professional and social accounts
- It’s geared specifically to the professional realm
- The functionality is very similar to the existing Facebook site
- No obnoxious advertising (…yet)
- Includes collaborative tools catered to the work environment
It’s easily understood that Facebook at Work is expected to rival existing job tools and career networks like LinkedIn, Google Docs and Microsoft. It has been reported that Facebook employees have been using this interface internally for quite some time.
