Workplace by Facebook: Workplace, Social Intranet or Social Network? (II)

Last year, Facebook started offering a business solution called, Workplace by Facebook. It’s a variation of the social network of the same name, but for use in the office. Companies can easily register, calculate costs, and quickly get up and running.

Last year, Facebook started offering a solution for organizations called, Facebook for Work. It then officially started development in October 2016, changing its name to Workplace by Facebook.

Not every societal trend will find its way into the economy and companies in the near future, but with the way things are looking now, those in charge should monitor trends and at least consider them for their own intranets.
