GaggleAMP
GaggleAMP is well suited when you want to get timely local language content out to folks in other countries/regions, or content for a specific group/department. It is also well suited when you have multiple Gaggle content managers with multiple content calendars. It might be less appropriate if you want to hold multiple Social contests (gamification) with different rules, scopes, leaderboards, etc. for different groups/tags as there is only one leaderboard.

Well suited: - leadership communication. When our CEO posts a video to all company - it always gets the highest engagement - recognition/achievements posts - live streams for education, knowledge sharing - we are a company of 12000 associates and there is no other corporate channel for us to gather more than 500 people in one place. Less appropriate: - sharing some very targetted messages - it's impossible to do at Workplace without creating a group. So we use email channel for such targetted communications - instant communication like in a chat (probably it's less appropriate in our specific case because we use MS Teams for such quick communication instead of WP chats)

  • Bring groups of people together to share info, stories, updates, etc.
  • The chat app is pretty decent.
  • Workplace Live is a good large-group meeting broadcast platform.
  • It's pretty intuitive to use for anyone who's used Facebook.
  • It provides different levels of "security" for groups, allowing you to have open, closed, and "secret" groups.
  • It's easy to paste images into your posts and comments, without having to necessarily go through the process of saving an image as a file, etc.
  • It has search capabilities for finding old information.
  • It's available for both desktop/laptop and mobile devices.
  • It's secured to allow only those within the company to see company-related info (but it also has a few inter-company groups, which can be useful, too).
  • Workplace Chat has the ability to set it to Do Not Disturb.
  • You can set notifications, including email notifications, if you want to be alerted to new activity in your groups, etc.
  • You can use Markdown to format your text

Cons
GaggleAMP
  • There are no out of the box implementations to get started quick.
  • The campaign manager could be more involved and vocal about recommendations and how to implement them.
  • I'd like deeper insight into what my employees do and do not like to share.

  • It would be helpful if a review confirmation checkbox was able to be placed by files that needed to be read or reviewed. Along the same line, approve, review again, etc. would be helpful checkboxes to add by files, proposals.
  • The layout is clean but suffers a bit from the center column width with two sidebars and a lot of empty space. It almost looks like a going out of business sale retail store where you notice the empty shelves. Workplace feels a bit bare at times. I think some good design modifications can help. Now on mobile, it is a great layout. I am addressing specifically the desktop browser login.
  • An admin control dashboard would be really effective and even more so with more users on the platform.

Customer service has been good. It's easy to use. It's cost effective. It's a good way to expand your social presence and get your employees more vested in branding the company without spending a ton of money. There are bells and whistles that may be good for other users. I just haven't had the time to use them

Having to download multiple apps just to use the tool is very cumbersome. Facebook would have make this better by wrapping it in as a main feature within their app, but having to use multiple apps to see discussions and walls is so frustrating.

Support Rating
GaggleAMP
Support for GaggleAMP is easily the best customer support I've experienced with any software tool. Our rep, Sam, is dedicated to our account (no bouncing around a call-center bullpen), and is highly proactive and eager to help us succeed. Most of our interactions have nothing to do with problems, but rather opportunities to optimize our use of the tool and set us up for greatest success. GaggleAMP sets a gold standard for customer support!

Workplace by Facebook is an excellent fit in respect of support and documentation. It has excellent tutorials and documentation, as well. The UI and UX are already great as it is developed and maintained by Facebook, so most of the times, there is no need for any support or documentation.

Alternatives Considered
GaggleAMP
A former colleague suggested EveryoneSocial, but I think that GaggleAMP has more industry experience in terms of employee advocacy and social engagement. While it did appear somewhat easier to use, it didn't have all the features and attention to detail that GaggleAMP provided such as the detailed reporting and the specific activity suggestions I was looking for.

Workplace by Facebook is so much more than just a project management tool like Basecamp or Slack. The ability to disseminate information to employees is easier and better with Workplace by Facebook. It can also be used for informal messaging and sharing of information. It combines the best features of both with the same look and feel as Facebook.

  • Take this with a grain of salt, but our company's all-time CPC (cost per click) savings is $1.85 M ($184,116.95 last quarter).
  • GaggleAMP has become an important part in getting our employees and partners to engage with us on Social Media more regularly - a great tool for getting information out there.
  • Brand awareness.
