Facebook’s Workplace, a business platform Facebook uses to connect with Co-Workers, officially opens for public use.
Currently, more than 1,000 organizations and companies world-wide use Workplace. The top five countries that have been frequently using Workplace include France, India, Norway, the UK, and the US. Large companies that use this platform include Danone, Starbucks, Booking.com, Oxfam, YES Bank, and the Government Technology Agency of Singapore.
Seeing Workplace’s success within the company, Facebook deemed it useful for other businesses to use, thanks to its features that better connect colleagues with one another.
Workplace functions similarly to the Facebook the public knows and loves. For example, it contains a Live Video feature, which companies can use to connect with colleagues around the world. Other Workplace features, some of which are new and some familiar, include the following:
