NEW YORK: Facebook is already the center of our personal lives. Now it wants to own our work life too.

Facebook officially launched a service called Workplace. It's intended to let employees chat with colleagues to get work done – as opposed to the usual reason we use Facebook at work: for distractions.

Workplace looks and feels like Facebook, complete with the usual mix of News Feed, Groups and Trending stories, but it's focused specifically on your company.

Employees can use Workplace as an online bulletin board to follow company announcements and events.

They can also organize Facebook Groups within the company or between firms they do business with. There are options to message or call coworkers and to watch live stream Q&As with top executives.

Workplace is entirely separate from your personal Facebook network – and can be used even if you don't have a personal account.

“At Facebook, we’ve had an internal version of our app to help run our company for many years. We’ve seen that just as Facebook keeps you connected to friends and family, it can do the same with coworkers. We started testing a version of Facebook for the workplace with a few other organizations over a year ago,” Facebook said in a statement.

“Now, more than 1,000 organizations around the world use Workplace (formerly known as Facebook at Work). People have created nearly 100,000 groups and the top five countries using Workplace are India, the US, Norway, UK and France. We’re excited by the progress we’ve made and the level of adoption and engagement we’re seeing.”

“So today we’re announcing that Workplace will now be available to any company or organization that wants to use it,” the statement said. – Samaa/Agencies
