Facebook at work finally arrives, renamed workplace

Facebook logoWe first started hearing rumors about a special version of Facebook for working professionals about two years ago. In 2015 the company confirmed that it was working on this new platform and called it Facebook at Work. The platform has been in closed beta for more than 20 months and it has now been officially launched today. The company has renamed Facebook at Work to just Workplace.

Workplace is similar to the Facebook that more than a billion people use every day, the only difference being that it keeps personal and work accounts separate. This enables Facebook users to share things with colleagues, be part of groups and do much more without worrying about personal and work accounts getting mixed.

Facebook has launched Workplace as a desktop and mobile app complete with its own News Feed. Additional features include Live video, Reactions, Groups, Chat, video and calling aside from more.

Since Workplace is aimed at businesses, Facebook is going to charge money for this platform. It’s going to charge for Workplace based on monthly active users which it defines as those who open up and use Workplace at least once every month. It’s going to charge $3 per user per month for the first 1,000 users, $2 for the next 1,001-10,000 users and $1 for any and all monthly active users over and above that.

Some businesses that have already signed up to use this platform include the Royal Bank of Scotland, Starbucks, Booking.com, and mobile carrier Telenor.
