The software, called Facebook at Work, will allow employees to send professional messages and share documents during work hours. AKA the Slacker competitor. Will be rolling out today!
Facebook at Work isn’t a real-time collaboration tool like Google Docs and Spreadsheets–you won’t be able to work on documents simultaneously. However, employees will be able to share documents and post messages securely among their company network.
Employees with companies using Facebook at Work will find that their work account is only visible to others within the organization. However, they will still be able to access public content on regular Facebook.
Users will also be able to connect their work and personal accounts, enabling them to switch back and forth between the two. Employers will not have access to employee usernames or passwords.
Will a familiar interface entice employees to get more active in workplace social networks? We will find out soon. Read More.
