Its a great balance of modern office tooling and features

Pros

Various companies have different tools or services to handle their documentation, collaboration etc but Workplace gives all the tools necessary for communication and document sharing in one seamless integration

Cons

Navigation can be a bit of learning if you haven't already used Facebook before, still its quite intutive out of the box

We use it at our agency every day. Facebook's problems seem to be Workplace's problems: when many people post per day, it's hard too see all status updates. So you become stuck with 2 endless feeds of posts from people. Otherwise, it's better than Slack in my book, for what I use it for - infrequent status updates.

Pros

- Easy to get started: If you use/love Facebook, you'll use/love this.
- Lots of privacy features: You can follow people, not use a picture, only join certain groups - feels more private than regular Facebook.
- Feels snappier: I don't know if it's because we only use it for about 40 people, but the overall desktop experience feels faster than Facebook, which is a plus in my book.

Cons

- Endless feed of updates from colleagues, same as with regular facebook.
- A lot of features from regular Facebook aren't present in Workplace - yet.
- Groups can be addictive to join, but also hard to manage.

Pros

This is a great software, especially for project management. I'm able to make groups and only to those who are involved in a certain project. Just like facebook, you can also add photos but you can also add files for the team to review. The members can update their status and you can always view the new on going. It's a fantastic tool because you can access it anywhere.

Cons

It can be a little addicting - but not in a bad way. Watching the progress of my team, just makes me want to keep going! lol

What if Facebook was streamlined to essentials and free of excessive fat? That's Workplace.

For a long time Facebook was a leisure outlet on the workplace - the one for wasting time and getting lost in-between tasks. With Workplace the dynamics had flipped and now it is a legitimate productivity tool where you can chat with your colleagues, exchange ideas, drop some stuff and discuss serious matters without distracting yourself to everything else in your newsfeed.

Pros

Workplace combines the best features of Facebook, Slack and Basecamp and makes a case of a private social media application designed for productive communication and not time wasting.
It works really well as a company's general newsfeed and it allows to bond the collective in a more easy-going and informal manner.
On one hand, Workplace is a perfect working environment for human resources - streamlined, self-contained and direct. It really helps to establish solid internal Employer Branding and keep every member of the team on the same page. There are numerous features that allow various temperature checks of the teams via polls, discussions, etc. On the other hand, Workplace is a really good fit for onboarding of the new team members.

Cons

Since this is a Facebook product - there are certain concerns over privacy. When it comes to sharing some sensitive data - actions often proceed in a more trusted environments.
On the other hand, there is just too much of the stuff to do. The novelty of "Facebook but for work" wears off pretty fast and it makes Workplace more of a gimmick tool than an actual productivity tool.
As it often happen with Facebook newsfeed - it might get crowded and cluttered after a while, especially if the activity is relatively high. Aside from project related groups - it is often nothing more than a link dumpster.

I used it at my company for 8months everyday

Pros

- it's totally free for non-profit companies
- ease of use, if you have an own account facebook (it's almost the same! even GIFs and reactions)
- you can invite someone from outside the company to group and channell/chat

Cons

- it's especially good for big companies, not small teams
- I miss something ... and the slack is much easier to write on the channels

It was good but overall I used it only for basic peer communication, team communication and organisation level events broadcasting.

Pros

It's simple, it's Facebook, the only limitation is you can't search for org's outside profiles.
It's learning curve is too simple as we are already familiar with FB.
It's cheapest alternative to it's all major competitors.

Cons

Can't use it as CMS or asset management system.
Don't have slack like integrations.

Pros

This is a best solution in operations of each business/company that has different location even internationally.

Cons

The introduction can be more elaborate by means of ads not only to business, but to individual consumers as well.

Workplace makes my everyday job feels more like an easy-going stress free experience. I think every company should try it out; it is a great way to get to know the people you work with, interact with them, and team up efficiently.

Pros

This is not the first social network focused on a Company's Business, but Facebook being behind Workplace surely makes it one of the highest grossing Enterprise-Driven Networks right now.

The Interface is friendly and as expected, quite similar to Facebook, for not saying identical. It has its obvious differences when it comes to certain features that are more adapted to a Professional environment.

The best description to the positive assets that I can give to Workplace is that it is a fun way to get to know the employees of the company you work for, you might find people with the same interests, share funny jokes, videos, photos, statuses, create and join groups, etc.

You can create events to invite your co-workers, or even schedule meetings and endeavors that are more related to your company’s main goals.

It is easy to use, and if you are a Facebook user you will feel at home.

Cons

Just like in Facebook, the main App and the Messenger are separate softwares.

Sometimes you might get overloaded by notification's mails on your inbox.

Depending on the company's size, some features might become confusing when working at a big Enterprise, such as having too many groups to choose from with similar goals/topics.

Love being able to access this while I’m already on Facebook you don’t have to go to different sites to look for jobs it’s already there for you.

Pros

Love how when you put in the area you are looking for in a job you get real results for jobs near you.

Cons

Some when you clicked on a job were vague on the descriptions but that’s not the workplaces fault. It’s the people that listed the job

We were hoping to engage a group of ministry leaders that don't all work in the same building and was hoping this tool might help. We are thinking it might not bring the engagement we had hoped.

Pros

-The platform is familiar since it operates much like Facebook, but is separate and for internal inter-office usage.
-The tool can function as a wiki, so keep HR docs, etc.
-The chat feature is nice to be able to communicate and have simple, short conversations with colleagues.
-We can easily create a new group to start a specific conversation and not clutter the main conversation in the original group.
-The platform is on a separate account from a personal Facebook, so people have a "work" profile.

Cons

-This is a separate account from Facebook (Even though it is by Facebook) - which makes it a another social media tool for networking (That is only for our office). We want people to be on it more regularly, but they are not getting engaged as much as we hoped.
-There are some groups that as an Admin I still can't completely remove. I would like to delete them, but it is built in by default.
