Facebook Inc is currently in the development process of a work friendly website called “Facebook For Work”. This site will allow users to chat with colleagues, connect with professional contacts, business partners and collaborate over documents.
Rumors suggest that it might be cross between LinkedIn, Google Drive & Facebook. So one can definitely say Facebook is venturing out into the professional network beyond the social networking. Reports suggest that Facebook employees have been internally testing the site in their daily work and the social networking site is now testing it with companies.
Facebook’s new work place oriented product will be similar to the functionality of its current site, with news feed, groups and messaging capability.
Remains to see how “Facebook For Work” will be utilised in the office space. Hopefully, Facebook works out a way to put the social network into a more positive light in the office with the enterprise-oriented “Facebook For Work”.
