Charities now have a new way to communicate internally following Facebook’s release of its Workplace platform.
The product is very similar to the social network used by over a billion people every day, but it focuses on connecting users with a network of their colleagues at work, and charges a fee per user. Workplace has been designed to take on office communication companies like Slack and Yammer.
The social network has been testing Workplace, previously known as Facebook at Work, for two years and said that more than 1,000 businesses were already using it.
In a statement, the company said: “We’ve seen that just as Facebook keeps you connected to friends and family, it can do the same with co-workers. We’ve brought the best of Facebook to the workplace.”
Workplace is Facebook’s first service to charge a subscription fee, a deviation from the company’s usual advertising-funded model. An employee’s Workplace account is kept entirely separate from any personal Facebook profile they may use to share content outside work.
