Product Details

What is Workplace from Meta?

Workplace is a business communication tool from Meta that helps teams stay connected in a simple and secure way. With familiar features like Live Video and Groups, users can share information, engage your employees, build culture and connect people anywhere, anytime. It is designed so the user doesn't need to be an IT genius to use it, and so that anyone can pick it up and get started straight away.


Workplace integrates with tools like Office 365, Google Workspace and ServiceNow, or the user can build custom integrations to connect any other tools relied upon. The vendor states that security and privacy are at the heart of Workplace - user data belongs to the user, and it is kept separate from Facebook.


Workplace boasts over 7M users worldwide.

Workplace from Meta has been an incredible resource over the shift of hybrid working during the pandemic. Because of the platform, we were able to still connect all our employees together when they could not physically connect in the real world. The platform is a one stop shop for employee communication, meetings, live video and content sharing.

Workplace [from Meta] is particularly useful for global companies or those with dispersed teams, as the social nature of the platform allows for people to review and catch up on content in their own time and for senior leaders to create and publish content in a variety of ways (video, written, etc). It also encourages open discourse, allowing people of all levels throughout the company to engage in conversations and showcase ideas and contributions.

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)

If your business is all about time is money or agility or connecting different coworkers, if it's upgraded with his time and isn't afraid of innovation and try to bring all the coworkers together, Workplace is one of the best tools to use. Especially if your team doesn't work in one building.

It seems to me a very appropriate tool for large organizations in need of having a single internal communication platform to not abuse the sending of emails. On the other hand, I think it still lacks development to simplify many things, it is also overwhelming for small companies, for few employees it may have a large learning curve

The recommended scenarios and where Workplace by Facebook fulfills the objective in a wonderful way are those where you want to transmit a message live to large audiences, without the need for the receivers of the transmission to install an application or additional components on their computers. The opposite case applies to events where all participants are required to have the need to interact with the interlocutors or in low-mass events.

Workplace is a great fit for smaller companies like 1-15 employees because it won't get overwhelming if it's your main communication channel. It's great for remote work so you can message someone if you need something or quickly post a status update, comment on project work, tag people if they need to do something, etc. If you need project management software, this wouldn't be a great fit because it would be tough to keep track of everything in its posted as comments without due dates, assigning, timing, etc.

I think Workplace by Facebook is a great communication vehicle for any mid-sized to large company. (Since it's more groups-oriented than "regular" Facebook, it might not work well for smaller companies.) I also don't have any idea what the cost is for having it, but that also be a reason that it wouldn't be worth the expense for smaller companies. For larger companies, I think it's a terrific way for folks to communicate with one another and for "the powers that be" to communicate with employees. Facebook Live is only suitable when you have a limited number of people who need to be on screen and it wouldn't really be suitable as a vehicle for instructor-led online training -- it's really most suitable for presentations (although, via the comments area, does allow for questions to be asked in writing).

Workplace from Facebook is a very cool tool for communication, files sharing, video sharing, and limited collaboration, but it also lacks some basic features that require an organization for proposals and progress tracking. Also it may be a noise tool for the too much notifications in a ordinary working day.

Workplace is well suited for organizations that need a lightweight and familiar application to use it for their communication as they had the same user experience as Facebook. But I don't think it is the best application when it comes to full remote work as it lacks many key features available at some of its competitors.

It's definitely appropriate if you want to improve your messaging and collaborative abilities within your company. It makes it easier for people to communicate both during and outside of work hours, which is especially important depending on the nature of your work. It has also reduced the volume of emails that people receive and send since now people can just share things in a Facebook group or message someone. If you think your workers will get distracted easily or post things that should only be on a personal social media place then its definitely not appropriate for your workplace. In this case, it will end up just being a platform where your employees will go to pass time.

Workplace by Facebook is well suited for organizations having a large number of employees or having remote work or multiple offices. It helps all of the users to connect straightforwardly, share various documents or files with other team members, create different groups for different projects, etc.

Workplace by Facebook is well suited for the day-to-day requirements of internal online communication in an organization. We can keep connected with other colleges in a very easy and familiar way. These needs include: chatting with colleges, documents or data sharing with other team members, posting live updates about projects, etc. Workplace by Facebook is well suited for these scenarios. I think it's less appropriate for posting personal or non-professional updates or content.

Workplace is great as a team collaboration and communication tool that is easy to deploy and eliminates friction. I would also recommend it to small agencies who need a client communication portal as it does a great job filling the need. It is also a great tool for associations, community teams, and specialty groups like a club or employee group. As long as guidelines are set and you do not have a predisposition towards paranoia, I would think any group that has a need for communication that needs to be centralized, this can serve you well.

  • Great place for the HR department to post policies, forms, hiring.
  • Good way for departments to work together on simple events.
  • Good way to post daily events and get feedback from staff ongoing projects.
  • It should be only for work-related items. No personal information should be posted.

It has helped me lots when I need a referral or when I have a specific question. I can find information or get my questions answered almost immediately. I don't think it's appropriate for a company to use it as its number one means of communication because when you have so many people that are a part of it, a lot of things get lost in communication.

Workplace by Facebook works well when you have a hard time managing many technologies for chats, company information, etc. Our company had many technologies we were using, and some were used just by a single department. By switching everyone in the company to Workplace by Facebook, we lost most of the headaches that came from having everyone using different technologies for communication. If your company effectively manages its disparate communication methods already, then Workplace by Facebook will be less valuable.

Workplace is great and is greater if you work with young people, the interface is similar to Facebook, so the people feel relaxed to work there. It is funny to use because time to time people respond to serious topics with a meme or a GIF that helps to relax the conversation and be happier at work.

If you have Office 365 with Skype Sharepoint Yammer and HR tools like MySuccess there is no need to replace them with Workplace. If you are on the way to implementing a new global tool it is worth it to consider, especially when you have a lot of young employees who may see the benefits of using that tool.

Workplace by Facebook is a very good and intuitive way to have efficient conversations with groups or individuals. It is perfect when you need to post an item for review and have a real-time conversation with other team members. It is best suited in small organizations and in big organizations, Workplace by Facebook can be used in between departments for communication between team members and team leaders.

It works very well in a company or organization that doesn't already have integrated HR style systems in place. It's not perfect and some features can be more tedious to use than others. Many do seem to like its easy to use interface and find it more approachable than other products.

If your team is brand new and not paranoid about sharing super-sensitive information, Workplace by Facebook is worth checking out!
