Workplace by Facebook

Workplace is an enterprise connectivity platform developed by Facebook, Inc. and featuring tools like groups, instant messaging and News Feed.


Workplace was first announced on January 14, 2015. It launched in beta as Facebook at Work with customers including the Royal Bank of Scotland before officially launching in October 2016. Facebook itself had been using a version of Workplace internally since 2011 when one of its engineers created groups that were only accessible to people inside the company. Alongside Facebook Messenger, these private groups helped Facebook employees work more efficiently together by reducing their reliance on email and other Software as a Service tool. Features: News Feed: The News Feed is a scrolling stream of posts that uses Facebook's machine learning algorithms to keep people up to date with relevant company announcements. Groups: Groups are shared collaboration spaces where people can upload documents, leave comments, manage projects, and get work done with colleagues. Multi-Company Collaboration: Workplace enables people to collaborate with external teams, partners or suppliers from within their Workplace account using secure and private groups, chats, and video calls. Workplace Chat: Workplace Chat is an instant messaging tool that allows text, voice calls or video conferencing with up to 50 colleagues. Live Video: Live Video enables users to broadcast live directly from their mobile devices and receive real-time feedback in the form of comments and reactions. Auto Translate: Auto Translate uses the same machine learning technology that serves up 4.5 billion translations every day on Facebook to provide one-click translations in 46 languages. People Directory: Find colleagues, build connections, and collaborate more effectively with a searchable database of profiles customized to individual organizations.
