Just about everyone who has ever used the internet has been on the social media site Facebook. This social media giant is now helping co-workers stay more connected at their place of work. With Facebook Workplace, companies can stay more connected by giving their employees access to what is essentially their own company’s private Facebook. This separate Facebook account allows employees to stay up to date on all of the important updates at work without being distracted by their fast-paced social life. This new version of Facebook also solves the problem of employees constantly wasting time on this addictive social media site.
BuzzFeed reports that you do not need an existing Facebook account in order to sign up for a Facebook Workplace account. This opens up a whole new userbase for this already popular social media platform. The main feature of this app is to help employees stay connected. With video and voice calls, employees will be able to adhere more closely to workplace policies that frown upon cellphone use.
Facebook Workplace has also developed a highly advanced app that will allow employees who are on the run to stay in touch with everything that is happening at the office. This new social media is an ad-free platform that is very affordable for organizations. At only a few dollars per active user, this makes investing in Workplace a no-brainer.
