    Facebook for the office (i.e., via Workplace) has helped our company in terms of community and culture building, communication, collaboration, keeping up to date with the happenings across different departments and teams, messaging via direct chat, group chat, audio, video calls... there's a ton of features that make this a really worth it investment for any company big or small.

    Pros

    Almost everyone (except the rather super senior employees) have been using Facebook social media app... They know how it works, its functionalities, and benefits for keeping in touch with the people that matter to them... now, we have exactly the same app.. for use in the office workplace. Therefore, no training needed. Everyone on-board right away.

    Workplace replaced many of our internal apps (repositories, messaging, collaboration portal, etc). We now use workplace for community building, direct and group/project messaging, sharing of files, photos, and updates, audio and video calls, and live streaming of office events (which also serve as a recording device for late viewing).

    Everything you love about social Facebook, now available for exclusive work and office use.

    Cons

    Data security is and will always be a concern for the modern digital man. Although we know that this is a paid service, hence the data is supposed to be private and secure because it is not meant to be used for ads, and what not... Security, especially of recent, is always a big question mark and concern.

    Expose Your Abilities in an Organization with Workplace by Facebook

    Workplace from Facebook is indeed a superb tool for communication, file sharing, and limited collaboration, but it also lacks some basic features that require an organization for proposals and progress tracking.

    Although, our experience with Workplace is quite good as it has most of the tools that are required by an enterprise-like organization.

    Pros

    It is a time when every organization wants its employees to become more productive when it comes to working remotely. Workplace by Facebook is providing great collaboration to build closeness between employees and management, everyone becomes important when they get the power to communicate all the time.

    The best thing to appreciate is that it has a similar user interface as Facebook, therefore it does not require any special training for the members.

    Going live is very simple for various organizational or personal events, adding participants is also quite simple.

    The video streaming feature is a time-saver, anyone can reach the whole organization or a group any time as desired.

    Voice and video calling features make members reach any team member with just one tap, it also allows to add participants for meetings and routine discussions.

    Every general post or event appears on the newsfeed, it keeps everyone updated with whatever occurs within an organization or a department.

    If there are different teams, simply make groups and add team members into them, collaborate with everyone conveniently, and communicate about assigned tasks to an individual or a whole group.

    Cons

    The main focus of Workplace is on communication like Facebook, but it lacks progress tracking features, assigning tasks, and getting follow-ups in real-time.

    Sometimes, we need proposals to be reviewed and approved by the management or clients, it would be great if there is a feature to add proposals and send them to desired members for review and approvals.

    Reasons for Choosing Workplace from Meta

    People or more addicted to Facebook, so we moved to Workplace for more familiarity with Facebook.

    I use Workplace daily for team communication, and while it gets the job done it frequently is in your way, and needs workarounds for simple tasks such as sending images or links are implemented poorly.

    Pros

    - The UI is consistent and nice to look at.
    - It has a lot of customization options.
    - Group chats are very easy to create and manage

    Cons

    - Every link in the chat is proxied through the platform, so you need to be logged in the browser to open any link
    - The desktop app is poorly done, often requiring restarts/refresh
    - Images get proxied as well, which often results in loss of quality, so they need to be packaged in a zip file beforehand.

    We do event planning and put on a lot of events through out the year. A lot of the other similar solutions were mainly geared towards product creation or project completion. We needed something that was familiar and would be easy to train employees. Since this is a Facebook product, we knew this would be easy for our group to pick up and start using. We are a non-for-profit and most of our employees are volunteers, so we needed a solution that would give us fast and immediate communication with our employees. We needed a way to post our upcoming events, and then poll our workforce to who would be available to assist. This was the perfect fit for what we were looking for.

    Pros

    The software not only provides messaging. but also audio and video calling. There are two separate apps for this software. One is the Workplace app, which works the same as on your computer. The second is the Workplace Chat app. This app is very helpful in communication, as you can video and call via the app, as well as text message. File sharing can also be done via the chat.

    Cons

    The admin controls don't allow full access. Things like removing an employee, have to be done via email to support. You can deactivate an employee, which has the same effect, but simple employee removal is a must for most organizations.

    Reasons for Switching to Workplace from Meta

    The others either didn't have an "all in one solution," or they were simply over complicated. We needed communication and not project management. While some did have great features, the lacked in providing the basic items that we required, such a a mobile app with chat, and video conferencing.
