Facebook has been popular for two reasons, first for its everyday increasing user base (around 1.35 billion), and secondly for its over use and being restricted to use during office hours.
Facebook has been a major issue for many companies due to the distraction and wastage of time during office hours. Facebook at Work an all new web and mobile based app by Facebook might be a perfect solution to this distraction. Yet, it might not be the core aim of Facebook. Possibly, facebook is eyeing towards something new and ingenious, instead of creating liberalization in offices or entities. The core aim here seems to be revolution. Revolution in the field of technology and work, where employees & employers will be able to communicate effectively, resulting in increased business productivity.
As we had disclosed earlier about the new invention being created by Facebook called ‘Facebook at Work’; the same has been finally unveiled by Facebook this Wednesday.
The alas to say point over here is that the new facebook at work is not yet available for all, and is limited to some people and companies engaged earlier in the pilot plan of the same.
One may see some glimpse here that will express the user interface and color combination of the whole new social media network for professionals. As tweeted by Josh Miller, Product Manager at Facebook, facebook at work Facebook @ Work lets businesses create their own version of Facebook, just for their company and employees.
