Pros: I think how easy it is to use this product, as well as how easy it is. I can post a job opening for users around my area.

Cons: Facebook tends to get the "click bait" or spam links, which are sometimes hard to determine if they are spam or not.

This app is incredibly annoying

Pros: It is easy to use, because most people understand the general use of Facebook and all its features

Cons: This app has bullied me with a never-ending slew of notifications, even after muting them they still show up and completely fill my work inbox. VERY ANNOYING!

Pros: Is is super easy to communicate/coordinate projects with coworkers. I love you can create groups of just certain people. Creating events is also great for when you have meetings, etc.

Cons: Facebook as a whole has pretty rough customer service. They take forever to respond or just don't at all. Also, sometimes as things fall down the timeline they get lost.

The ubiquitous social media platform goes to work, and helps everyone stay on the same page!

Pros: Because it's based in one of the biggest, if not the biggest, social platforms online, most of the people already know how to use it before they get to it.
It helps people in big companies with the same interests meet up and form groups dedicated to those shared interests.

Cons: As with the non-workplace Facebook, it can get distracting a tad too quickly.
Because it shares both virtues and defects with it's socially focused brother, posts shared at workplace can get viral inside big companies, and while that in itself isn't bad, it can be hard to manage when it does go bad.

Overall: It helps me and my team to stay up to date with the company's news and developments.
It also allows for social groups to form, improving camaraderie between people who wouldn't had met otherwise.

Improves Communication, but Can Also Hinder Productivity

Pros: Using workplace for communication is a huge improvement from our current chat system. Previously, we could only message users when they were online at the same time as us. Now with workplace you can message users whenever you want to, without needing both users to be online. The ability to create specialized groups is also super helpful when you're working on a team and want to collaborate or share information. Furthermore, it makes it much easier to share interesting articles or other company wide information with groups of people without flooding their inboxes constantly.

Cons: Don't get me wrong, Workplace is a great communication tool. That being said, it has quickly started to morph into regular Facebook. People will still post their cat pictures or other funny things which can take away from how Workplace is supposed to be for "business only" matters. So in that sense, workplace can actually hurt productivity and frequently when workers are bored they will go on it to browse whatever funny things were posted or post something funny themselves. In addition, Workplace is only helpful if you have alot of users adopt in within your workplace. At my office, the older crowd doesn't want to use it, and only a select number of people who already have their own Facebook accounts have adopted workplace. With nearly half of your team refusing to use Workplace, it makes the software kind of a waste.

Pros: One of the largest hurdles to getting teams to buy in to software is learning to use the software. Workplace by Facebook works just like Facebook - so it's easy to deploy and get the team involved quickly. It also serves perfectly as a way for everyone to have logged communication.

Cons: While it's great for communication, it lacks what all good collaboration-type software has; tasks, email to group, etc. The good AND the bad of Workplace by Facebook is the fact that it's just like Facebook.

Overall: Workplace by Facebook is an easy tool to deploy because it's just like Facebook. But, while it's easy to use, it's lacking depth.

Love workplace facebook! Able to promote and show off your company.

Pros: Having facebook for the workplace is GREAT! You are able to promote special events, packages, and reach A LOT of valuable clients and guests. Being able to switch with a click from your personal facebook to work facebook is great!!!

Cons: It is very simple to use. only thing that was difficult to figure out at first is how to search for other business when you are on the work facebook

Pros: What I like most about this is I am able to upload information for my employees to read in a very user-friendly way since all of my employees already use Facebook for personal use.

Cons: What I like least about the software is I am unable to upload multiple photos/documents into one post for my staff.

Overall: A great, easily accessible place for my employees and I communicate in a private matter.

Facebook at work is a great option when looking for work communication software.

Pros: Very similar to Facebook's public application. The features that are added on like third-party file management and work chat are great

Cons: It's lack of a straight communication app for the desktop and the fact that you have to use a different facebook account
