It was in November last year that we first got the gist of Facebook at Work, which was said to have been tested out by 8,000 people already. Targeting the working professional group, Facebook at Work has finally debuted. This spanking new pilot program is the social networking giant’s way of testing the waters of the corporate world, where Facebook at Work will target only select partners on the web – and of course, you will be able to find apps on both Google Play and Apple’s App Store, which means Android and iOS platforms are well covered.
Facebook at Work has been described to be “a separate experience that gives employees the ability to connect and collaborate efficiently using Facebook tools.” While majority of folks have made use of Facebook efficiently, many of them would also use them regularly where their personal lives are concerned – including the likes of News Feed, Groups, Messages, and Events.
Facebook at Work intends to let co–workers remain connected to each other in the same manner as that done on regular Facebook. In other words, you do not need to jump on a steep learning curve to hop on board Facebook at Work. What next, Facebook at School/College, or Facebook at Army? It would be extremely interesting to see how such far an idea like this will travel in the long run.
