Pros: Close similarity between Workplace and Facebook ,making way for new users to have a fast learning curve with Workplace,since most people have an experience with Facebook.
The auto translation feature simplifies the process of communicating with staffs of my organization who are in a different country and therefore speak a different language . Auto translate enable us read their post and respond to them likewise and the translation is pretty accurate.
Workplace integrates with multiple of our work software like Google drive ,Hubspot and Survey monkey.

Cons: Since my organization adopted Workplace, I now have four Facebook apps. on my phone .Two for Workplace and workplace chat ,and another two for Facebook lite and Facebook messanger and there have been occasions I have logged in to my Workplace ,instead of my Facebook account. However the benefits of Workplace is enormous and I can cope with the above con.

Pros: I work remotely from my HQ office, with Workplace it's easier to communicate and work with my other colleagues. Discussions and new projects are delivered through Workplace, and seems everything going pretty smooth.

Pros: Workplace uses the Facebook News Feed layout, which has clearly been optimized for use over time. So it's an attractive interface and the content is easy to get to.

Cons: The program is used by a number of people at my place of business, but I couldn't quite tell if this was supposed to be a messaging and collaboration platform, like Slack, or if this was meant to be more of a work news platform, like LinkedIn. It was hard to kill notifications once I signed up as well. I imagine a number of people find this tool extremely helpful, but it didn't quite hit the mark for me.

Pros: We've been using Workplace for about 6 months now and are really enjoying it. We have a few different office locations and it's a nice way to share what's going on in each of the offices. Additionally, it's a great way to share company-wide news that impacts everyone. It also allows us to share the fun side of our office as well which funny pictures, motivational quotes, contests, etc.

Cons: Sometimes it can be a little distracting when you get emails throughout the day. There might be a way to do this that I'm not aware of but I'd love to get 1 email at the end of the day with all the updates that took place, as opposed to 1 email each and every time someone posts something. However, that's me really stretching to find a con.

Pros: Workplace chat - Workplace Chat has a simple and familiar interface like what's obtainable with Facebook messenger. It enable me communicate with my colleagues with ease ,while making use of stickers ,emoji and gifs to spice up my conversations with my work peers. It also enable me to create polls, exchange video clips or share gps location with my team members ,when I am outside the office environment.

Groups - Workplace group is similar to Facebook groups , however this time , they serve as collaborative spaces where office tasks ,and projects get done. Workplace group makes it easy to share files in a secure environment , tag team members , get feedback and assign tasks.

Org chart - There are over 5000 users on my organizations Workplace. Therefore it can be an hideous task, having to search for team members working on a particular project or staffs in a particular department. Org Chart solves this problem by making it easy for me to quickly search up individual user profiles and team info. , therefore making me expend way less time trying to find out who to contact.

Cons: I have sometime lost track of what I needed to do ,and expended precious time reading official posts and trending gossips on Workplace.

Pros: It has all the facebook features (photo albums, friend requests, tagging, post reactions and comments) for your office environment. It helps companies to create a tied bounding between all the company collaborators.

Cons: The thing is, this is an extra layer of a successful product that you already can use and add all your colleges to it, called facebook. So, if you are want to divide your office relations from your the one in your personal live this is the tool to do so.

I love you can create groups of just certain people. Creating events is also great for when you have meetings, etc.

Cons: As of this time that I am using Workplace, I really do not see a thing that I do not like or need. All features are useful to our institution. It has become an aggregator to projects, project management tools are quite lacking in the application

Overall: We use Workplace in my organization to connect every of my organizations staff in every location ,team and department.

Pros: I like most about this is that it is easy to learn since the interface is familiar. Most of us are using Facebook and the difference is that only people you work with can see and communicate with you. This is also not integrated with your personal Facebook account.

Cons: It can not be integrated with other third party software. Also, I think the software can only be used by small to medium organizations.

Overall: Communicating and sharing ideas with colleagues within the organization has been optimized.

Pros: What I like most about having implemented Workplace is that we were able to find a space to streamline our meetings and remote objectives, because many of the work teams are located in other countries.

Pros: At first I was excited to have facebook workplace in our organization, however it is just proving to be another time killer. Lots of management speeches and work related motivational quotes. Its a good news sharing application about whats happening in the company. If you are neck deep in to work assignments than this is of no use to you. Otherwise , you may have good info sharing , fun, knowledge sharing through this within your team.

Cons: Nothing much. You can't compare it with original facebook. Otherwise you have similar features as in Facebook. Wont find public groups and posts related to trivial but funny matters.

Overall: Good application for information dissemination among team members. Feeds you with important information within the organization.

Pros: Very useful for helping with new co workers and easy to set up. This platform is great to keep topics and discussions all centralized and great to keep workers informed and its very cheap. Extremely useful if you run a remote business where you do not have much contact with employees. You can hold important discussions, post weekly updates, and directly connect with certain people. Definitely a great way to answer questions and solve problems.

Cons: Wish it had more of a CRM capability. It's just like regular facebook but aimed at businesses. Wish it would integrate with your personal facebook better. Last, I wish it was more customizable being that it sometimes can be super time consuming scrolling through groups.

Overall: It was cool being able to keep connected without a office or workspace for the team to share ideas but I was looking for a little bit more.

Pros: The Workplace features and functionalities are what I like best because they're more unique than other programs. I've used Slack which I've seen vastly improve company communication (in terms of speediness + efficiency) and company culture (due to GIFs and groups)... I've used Basecamp which has incredibly improved project management + clarity. Workplace, though, is specifically good for onboarding and training. I love the poll feature, too, and I haven't seen that used in other programs. However, the poll feature should be used for strictly non-emotional topics. I've used it to get my team to choose a preference in a date or a time or a food option. It shouldn't be used for diverse or political topics.

Run polls in Groups to get a quick pulse on company issues
Use Workplace Chat bots to make payroll, benefits or onboarding processes quicker and easier
Share Live Videos, webinars and articles for more efficient training
Connect new hires to the team (and each other) using Multi-Company Groups
Recognise employees quickly and easily in News Feed with a simple Reaction or even a GIF

Cons: I think because Workplace is a Facebook product companies are less likely to invest in it for company culture / communication due to Facebook's social media nature which doesn't scream 'productivity' to corporate higher-ups. Also, the data security issues happening right now al make companies trust Facebook less especially because Workplace is for business.

Pros: We use Workplace in my organization to connect every of my organizations staff in every location ,team and department. It is handy for project collaborations and provides me with multiple ways to communicate with my team members from chatting , video calls ,audio calls ,group comments etc
It has a short learning curve as it is very similar with Facebook social network ,and has an almost identical user interface and functionality. It integrates efficiently with some of our regularly used third party solutions at work like Azure ,Bluejeans and Okta.

Cons: I dislike that I am only able to access Facebook workplace via a VPN at work ,and also I see very little difference between Facebook social network and Facebook workplace and honestly , Facebook social will easily replace this program in any organization. So I wonder why we have to pay to use Facebook workplace premium ,when we can access most of the features for free on Facebook social.

Pros: Eliminates emails back and forth and provides an easy way to post memos for all staff to be informed

Cons: The groups are hard to understand how to subscribe to and sometimes the information gets lost in a group rather than a main posting board. The permissions may need to be expanded

Pros: I love the ability to place all internal communications into one location. It makes finding the information even easier since it lives on the page you posted to. Its also a great tool to call/message other employees who you may not know personally or have their contact information. We have used it to post critical information and get it to our staff in a quick and timely manner. It is also easy for most people to grasp how to use since it looks and feels like facebook.

Cons: I wish there were more ways to decide what type of notifications you receive. I also do not like that you need to download the messaging app (like facebook) separate from the actual app.

Pros: We tried FB Workplace to run a community-based site. Out of the box it works and looks like the public Facebook so users could quickly set up their profiles and start interacting. The privacy of not being on the public Facebook site is useful and at a low cost per user per month.

Cons: Like the public Facebook there are a number of inconsistencies across the user interface that we found to be a constant frustration. Users frequently complained of editing issues, publishing content was straight forward but pretty basic and getting support when there was a problem was not a quick or often happy experience.

In the end we went back to a forum after experimenting with Workplace for 6m.

Pros: We piloted a project at work, where the entire office switched to this platform to manage all projects and activities. We appreciated the fact that we could flawlessly integrate social lives and professional lives as everyone have facebook. The management of projects and apps was pretty easy going.

Cons: Despite its pros, we found this platform to be underdevelopped. If you're looking at a task management system with an integrated chat, I have unfortunately found better alternatives.

Cons: The timeline of posts can be unclear at times, it seems slightly disorganized. Overall, it's just like regular Facebook but for work.

It is an awesome way to network with colleagues, keep track of events in offices. The premium edition provides access to APIs for creating bots for enhancing productivity which is great. The chat portal with voice and video calling is an added bonus too.

Cons: The current price per user/per month is a bit steep in my opinion. Other platforms like Slack/ Flock provide same or better features absolutely free.

Pros: Currently many of our acquaintances have a personal Facebook account, so to use Workplace very little (or none) is needed, and it was easy to implement this application throughout our organization. The best part of the application is that Facebook offers it free of charge. The characteristics that it possesses, work very well for the use of the office; For example, create groups, instant messaging, video and calls, share photos and files, in addition to making videos to be broadcast live.

Workplace also allows us to connect with our external suppliers, as long as they have Workplace in their companies.

Cons: I really have no complaints about Workplace, it is to manage your personal Facebook profile, but now you will use it only for work purposes and with your work team network.

Overall: Workplace I recommend it for those who wish to be aware of any news and to have direct communication with their co-workers.

I like the facility of having open groups with my workplace to answer business questions without the interruption of everyday Facebook.

Cons: Some things I dislike about Workplace is that it is not that easy to format post, it is not possible to use Markdown formatting in the comments and the timeline is a bit confusing. It is not clear why some post appear and some posts don't. The task management scheduling future in terms of calendaring can be improve, but in general is a good software.

Overall: This software has been very useful at the moment a management team works in my company, improving the internal communications on these teams.

Workplace is a pretty cool internal tool for teams to collaborate.

Pros: Workplace is like a clone of Facebook. And since almost everyone in the office has a personal Facebook account, there is very little (to none) on-boarding needed to deploy this app into our entire organization.

We are a non-profit organization and so the best part of this is that Facebook offered this product to us Free of charge!

All the features of Facebook work great for office use (e.g., creating groups, instant messaging, video and calls, sharing pictures, videos and files)

Workplace also allows us to connect with external vendors who have Workplace in their companies. Works great for project implementations.

Cons: This is cloud-based and all data is stored on Facebook servers in the cloud. If you are wary of Data Privacy, just make sure to review the privacy notice, and terms of use.

Overall: All the features of a personal Facebook account are now available for office use!

Communication - best for instant messaging, voice and video calls, even live-streaming of our events. Company-wide announcements are now easy to post and even track who's viewed each post. Notifications via email are also helpful to remind 'inactive' people to log-in to Workplace and keep updated via posts and their wall.

Collaboration - we can easily create groups as shared workspaces for project work.

Culture-building - since we used this app, we experienced an increase in employee engagement. People started sharing all kinds of stuff (mostly work related, but sometimes even non-work-related like outings, birthdays, etc).

Pros: My company just started using this tool a little less than a year ago and it has really created a more collaborative environment for the company. We have combined weekly email updates and just uploaded them onto Workplace. People also can add pictures just like Facebook to their profile and it really helps you to get to know people better. You can also post small wins for your team so that co-workers can see it. You can also create groups for different locations, teams, etc. and post events and updates based on those specifications.

Cons: One issue is with the chat feature. On our old tool, you could see if someone was away or in a meeting and then you would know not to message them, but with this tool, you cannot do that. It is just hard to know if someone may have read your message or not.

Pros: It's really easy to communicate with coworkers and make posts asking for help from people across the organization. It's also super easy to make either group chats or workplace groups for your different working groups you have. This allows you to create one centralized location to discuss a project you're working on or share documents with other people. It's also very easy to pickup using the tool since it's exactly the same as regular Facebook.

Cons: Sometimes people will post funny pictures or other stuff which can deter from it being only for work-related content. Just be careful you don't have people using it like they would their personal Facebook account.

Pros: It's just like facebook. If you can run facebook, you can operate this. We are a global company, and this enables us to see what different departments are doing across the globe. The most useful feature so far has been "groups" where you can share specific information related to a project, campaign, etc.

Pros: This software is really easy to use if you are an active Facebook user. The platform resembles Facebook even down to the messaging feature. It is easy to keep the tab for Workplace open on your computer and you receive push notifications to email if you are mentioned by a team member. It works really well for our team because they are split between two countries, so it gives us a virtual space to interact and share photos and stories from the field that we can then use in fundraising campaigns and on social media.

Cons: The downside is that a lot can happen between log-ins, especially if you're working across time zones. Sometimes I will log in and be overwhelmed with notifications because the team abroad has been sharing content in bulk. Topics can also be broken into groups, which is a useful feature but can get confusing if not properly organized.

Overall: It is a user-friendly, intuitive software that will work well for those accustomed to Facebook.

Its nice to have your facebook open and create a post in that group and be able to reach only the people involved, just like you do with your private facebook account, in the same easy format. Its quite nice, and you can call workers with it or just have group discussion as if you were commenting on a friends random post. Easy.

Pros: It is an ideal application to stay connected in the office, usually there are always short fires that prevent us from accessing from the work computer to traditional facebook, and although we can only connect with work colleagues I love it.

Cons: They should add more features, but I can only comment on the free version, but I've heard that the premium is excellent

Overall: I can be connected with my co-workers during the entire working day

Comments: It does not have any problem, it allows you to deal with your different work topics as well as integrate all your work teams into a single platform

Pros: Is an excellent tool to deal with issues related to your work, it is a very friendly platform and with which everyone can relate to being part of facebook, it is very useful to integrate your different work teams and deal with the different topics related to work, share files or data

A very interesting way to turn a social platform into meaningful connections and features.

Pros: I love the fact that you can easily connect with those that you may never have thought could be meaningful professional relationships. I think that it has a leg up on any competitor in the space.

Cons: If I had to be picky, I think that the fact that it is still "Facebook" hinders some from using this instead of strictly LinkedIn. I think you keep pushing, and this hesitation will fade.

Pros: I like that it allows the team who utilizes social media in my office and worldwide to exchanges ideas and information quickly for us to be truly effective.

Cons: I feel like they constantly change up the UI of the software and they're little tweaks that you can't quite place your finger on but know that they've changed something. It drives me batty.

Pros: It is Facebook for work - so I see so much engagement across our various global teams - we are starting to share work things with people, we have actually used the collaboration function to create documents together, and I get to see pictures from others - really, it's all the great things Facebook is for work!

Cons: Signing in for companies is more difficult - and I think its hard if we are also not all on the same work domain - so for example, care.org people are on but care.ca people can't get on. And I wonder what limitations those are caused by.

Overall: Getting teams across the world and people who work in remote field offices to start to engage better.

Pros: Workplace is essentially the same setup as Facebook. The benefit to this is that since most people already have their own personal Facebook accounts, there isn't much of a learning curve when implementing this software at work. The chat is also a great feature because you an instantly private message a coworker or start a group chat with people you're working on a project with. Lastly, I like the ability to create groups because then you can share certain documents or articles with specified groups of colleagues.

Cons: One of the biggest issues with this software is that a lot of older coworkers refuse to use it since they don't have their own personal Facebook accounts and therefore don't know how to use the program. As a result, workplace by facebook is also helpful if other coworkers are willing to adopt the software. Secondly, while workplace can help with productivity it can also hurt it. If you don't monitor what content or photos people are posting people can quickly turn it into regular Facebook making the software a time sink and a site workers will visit for distractions.

Overall: It's a great improvement from our old chat software. With our old software, you could only message coworkers who were online. Therefore, someone could be in the office but because they aren't signed into the software they won't get your message. Workplace is great because you can message anyone you need to regardless of their online status. In addition, there's a desktop chat app that you can download so you can make sure you're always receiving any messages coworkers send you without having to log into the website.

Pros: Facebook work place is pretty much an internal Facebook for employees and their bosses. It is excellent for communication in the workplace and i think is a great team building application.

Cons: It is tough to format posts a lot of the time without having to recreate the entire post i think it lacks features that are in the normal Facebook app but otherwise it is great.

Overall: Facebook workshop is great for the workplace and can work for team building purposes

Pros: Is the ultimate channel for cross-departmental and flat hierarchical communication. Connects the whole organization with tools that are intuitive and familiar for existing FB users. Helps users communicate, plan meets, share interests and turn ideas into action. Allows you to link events to your Google Calendar. Secure and safe.

Cons: Because of the look and feel, people forget that the software is for WORK. This sometimes means that users treat it like a social platform instead of a work communication platform.

Pros: what i most like about this software is that you do not need to create a specific account to use it, as long as you have a Facebook account that is it.

Cons: what i least like about the software is that it is still new so you wont find all the companies on it.

Pros: Workplace is based on the Facebook platform and since most of our employees are active on Facebook, it was very easy for them to adapt to the tool. The persistent chat and video calling features are excellent.

Cons: File sharing or sending capabilities are not that great. I understand that it has integrations with google drive, but if it had basic file sending and posting capabilities, that would be helpful.

Overall: Better team collaboration. We used to share emails and sticky notes daily. Not anymore.

The interface is so cool to use within a workplace.

Pros: My manager would post status letting us know when department meetings would take place, also post things like employee of the month and stats for the periods. It is very helpful as its based from my person Facebook page so I don't have to create any new accounts to access.

Cons: Since it is tied with my personal Facebook, sometimes I would miss updates if we were not personal invited on the update itself. Fortunately, you are able to place alerts on the Workplace account that sends an alert whenever a update is posted.

Pros: It's great that this tool is inexpensive! Our company created a workplace to bring all our employees together since we are all located in different countries in the world. It's great it looks identical to Facebook design.

Cons: The only thing I don't like about Workplace by Facebook is that our team members can't sign up to the workplace by themselves, but actually have to contact our company to apply to the workplace.

Overall: It has helped our entire company to know more about each other and create stronger bonds.

Pros: This software comes with a familiar user interface to everyone who has ever used Facebook and it's an advantage especially for first time users of this tool. It enables me connect with my colleagues at work ,ask them questions I didn't have the chance to ask them at work ,and obviously gossip too.

Cons: Since every of my colleague are also my friend on Facebook. Can seem a bit repetitive having to stay in touch with them on here too.
