I like the basic functions of the app. However, i don't feel that the app is necessary. I feel that the same tasks can be completed with Facebook messenger, office suite, Skype, or gmail.

Cons

I dont feel the program is necessary for my workplace. I'm still getting a feel for it and if anything changes I'll redo my review in following months.

Thanks, but no thanks. I'm already growing tired of my personal Facebook account and ready to get rid of it, so having to deal with the same platform among co-workers isn't very interesting to me. It has its uses, but strictly as an optional "just for fun" space. Do NOT try to do real business or communication with it.

Pros

Since this is literally Facebook for work by Facebook, it's good if your company places a high value on being social. Having non-business interactions, sharing common interests, and giving each other kudos for jobs well done can be useful for keeping moral up and inviting employees to get to know each other.

Cons

It may be for the office, but it's a social network platform. It's TERRIBLE for sharing critical information, and not effective for even general news that you want more of your folks to set eyes on. It's user feed is just as random and sporadic as regular Facebook is, and it's VERY easy for things to get overlooked.

We were trying to have our employees feel more connected on a platform they are familiar with. This seems to work decently. It is fun to acknowledge employees company wide.

Pros

I like that it is a great way for staff to stay connected and to see updates from the rest of the company about what is going on on a day to day basis. Nice layout that lot's of people are familiar with.

Cons

I don't like that it doesn't display the timeline in chronilogical order. This can make posts hard to find.

Pros

Think Facebook, but without any of the ads or personal information that you don't want to share with your co-workers. We've been using Workplace for about 4 months now (as a non-profit, we worked with Techsoup and are able to use the product for free) It was very easy to setup and get people signed up. There are some features that are really nice, such as the ability to let people sign up without email addresses but rather using their employee ID.

Cons

I've noticed that there are still some small bugs and it seems like not all the features that are found in Facebook are available in Workplace.

I'm so used to the constant blaring of regular Facebook that a quiet, professional Facebook is very odd. My publishing house set up a Workplace for us to have a private area to post our beta reading items, discuss upcoming anthologies, and things of that nature. It's easy to use because it is basically a private Facebook, but there are still some features missing- which is honestly a good thing. It's built for business networks and geared towards work collaborations, and you can tell when you log on and see the pared down system. It cuts the chatter, ads, distractions, and frankly... messiness down to zilch. It's definitely growing on me.

Cons

So far I haven't really found any, as I haven't used it enough yet. However, our publisher says that the free version is pretty limited admin-wise, which doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Why would a business have a network that they couldn't admin, especially with other networks out there that enable private business networks in the same vein that allow adminning your own team? Just seems a bit odd, is all. From a user standpoint, it looks great and smooth. From the admin standpoint, it seems there's a bit to be desired still.

Everybody uses Facebook nowadays and everyone on our team has an account with Facebook. It made it easy for us to test out Facebook Workplace when it was offered to us via an email campaign.

It doesn't add too much more beyond a basic Facebook group, or at least at the time it didn't. We weren't very happy with it

It's great because we all know facebook and I would have liked to stay on but I didn't think it was worth a budget line

Pros

I like that teams can communicate and it is easy to use since we all know the platform

Cons

The cost per user for a large org makes it not worth it, there are too many free communication platforms that are just as good

As a growing church, we always look for ways to align team efforts on multiple levels. Facebook Workplace seems to be the tool to get these players together (more than just the regular FB app).

Nothing much. If you are familiar with Facebook already, Workplace is not difficult to figure out. I am just starting to use it, so I need to see if this will work on the long haul.

What makes Workplace so easy to work with is that it really operates just like a Facebook group, and makes working on there more of a social engagement than a work one.

Cons

Because Workplace operates and feels just like Facebook, you are kind of left with the feeling that "why isn't there a free version of this"... considering Facebook's size and free competitors, I really didn't like that you weren't able to get Workplace for free for small teams.

Overall cheaper option with some compromises

Pros

It has a very easy way to communicate across all team members.
It can be used with Facebook App , So most of the mobile it has inbuilt app.
Overall it has messaging and calling and video conferencing facility, cheaper option than other available solutions.

Cons

Data security, as FB is advertisement based company they should protect valuable information, recently FB got some allegations.
Sometimes I get confused with my personal and professional account
