The Wall Street Journal recently reported that Facebook is slated to launch it’s collaboration and social networking tool for workplaces early next year.
Facebook at Work will allow employees to work together on projects and chat in real time via the Facebook interface, according to someone briefed on the specifics of this product.
At the time of this post, there will be no price tag attached to this tool and it may not have advertising initially, in an attempt to grow the user base. Companies that want to participate will have to sign up in order for their employees to have access.
Microsoft has integrated Skype and Lync for seamless enterprise multimedia messaging, and newcomer Slack was recently valued at $1 billion. We’re going to keep an eye on things to see who comes out on top in the near future.
