Facebook At Work wants you to use Facebook at work

Facebook At Work wants you to use Facebook at work

Do the words "Facebook at work" sounds like they belong in a disciplinary form to you? Me, too. What you might not expect is Facebook at Work is actually Facebook's new push toward private, business-oriented social networks.

Facebook at Work looks, feels and acts like the main Facebook site. What Facebook's work edition does differently, however, is limit who you can speak with.

Facebook hasn't yet demoed the final product, but the company explained that an employer creates a Facebook at Work account. From there, employees register with the service.

They can link their Facebook at Work account with their official Facebook account.

Facebook at Work functions similarly to Facebook groups. The difference, though, is that employers with security concerns can limit employee access to Facebook at Work.

That way, employees can share information, documents and chat on Facebook Messenger on a secure, private platform.

Facebook at Work isn't available to everyone quite yet. The company is rolling out its push toward our work slowly.

I don't think I'll be creating a Facebook at Work account my team at the studio. It'd be a helpful tool, but I'm not sure that I want Facebook having access to all of our internal communications.

If you want to see something that you can do on Facebook right now, then check out this personality test. It uses your Facebook profile to predict your personality.
