"Best buddy for any newcomer in the company"

What do you like best?

I found that the Workplace is very user-friendly. As it operates a lot like Facebook which allmost all of us use daily. I like utilizing the groups feature as it has allowed me to find out about company events, birthday, work anniversaries etc. and gives chance to connect with other employees that I may have not come across before. Workplace act as the enabler for me to communicate with my colleagues with ease. The use of stickers, emoji, and gifs makes the conversation more enjoyable. It is very easy to share important information quickly and to reach the work teams in a timely manner

What do you dislike?

No there is nothing to dislike as such, the video call quality I think can improve rest everything seems pretty fine.

"Efficient platform to realize any project "

What do you like best?

It really is a quite innovative platform, as it has very efficient tools for communication and in particular when we have to manage the agenda system in what is the company as such. In addition, it has the facility of being able to publish any advertisement in a very easy to use way.

What do you dislike?

It becomes a bit tedious the way in which one must process the steps to make a video call, which should be minimized as it wastes time and despairs certain customers who work with us.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are entering into what are the Internet businesses, you should start making this acquisition, because you will have the ability to have a very fluid communication with anyone and without limit.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We as a group (Company) have had an ample agility when using this platform, for the advances of actions of the company and facility to answer in greater amplitude and quality to the clients that must be attended to.

"Cool way to get connected with your colleagues. "

What do you like best?

I must say it's a cool idea from facebook to allow facebook at workplaces :).It is a cool way to get connected with your colleagues and stay updated with their achievements, updates and organizational announcements and will also gives you notification in case you missed anything. It also allows you to comment on the post and communicate with your colleagues via call or video calls

What do you dislike?

There is nothing much I dislike, but I think the call quality of the voice call and video call can be improved rest other things are fine and I am happy to use it.

"Boost to office morale"

What do you like best?

I love that it's a sight just for those in my work place. I felt like it greatly boosted team morale. It also helped me stay connected to what was going on in other departments, not just my own.

What do you dislike?

There seems to be a few too many notifications. It's probably just glitchy but it seems like it's not picking up that Ive already viewed and clearing my notifications.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a great tool for inter office communication. But this is also an amazing tool for boosting team morale and team spirit. It's been great for our office to be able to see what is going on with other departments. We've done work stuff, but also fun stuff too.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving team morale issues. Getting a chance to see what is going on with other coworkers, not just in at work, but home too makes for a much healthier, better connected work environment. It also really helped with communication with in the team. It wasn't just a few people getting the updates, now everyone across the board can know what is going on

"Best portable office workplace # Fun"

What do you like best?

Workplace at Facebook is one of the major impacting initiatives taken by FB. Now no more need of work place to manage things. A gift for persons who need to start up , with no infrastructure cost. FB provides complete platform where team share build develop ask and work as a team. Communication options are available like chat share audio video calls.

What do you dislike?

There are many such developer options which are not changed , some time it is hurdle for developer and development. The rapid changing versions of workplace raise some compatibility issues which need attention. Security is very big issue , as verification of user is simple and no hard security.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Need to review some of the security issues also need to work on compatibility issues. The GUI need improvement, mobile support need to be improved and GUI for mobile working need major improvements. Must include options of demanding interested users.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The major problem of infrastructure and recruiting staff will skills and management. All these problems are solved as with Workplace we create our best team and no matter where the person is, flexible workplace and time.

Easy to manage learn and develop the code.

"For Non Profits this is a god send."

What do you like best?

We are zombie slaves to facebook anyway, so the idea to turn its format into a company communication platform is amazing. There is so much you can do with it and for non-profit organizations, they offer it free.

What do you dislike?

There are a lot of people out there that are afraid of Facebook stealing all of our data. Any sort of conspiracy type of person may be reluctant to use the product and so an alternative may be needed. Kind of like how school lunches need to offer a vegan meal now. I have not had that problem with my work but I can see it happening.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do a bit of research first before committing but I can not see any downside. Everyone is already familiar with the format and there training is very step by step and support is great.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

people are actually talking to each other. I am using it to destroy the power dynamic that kills ideas from being freely shared. Plus people get credit for their originality and it's far harder to steal others ideas when its in writing on a general chat page. There is so much more to discover.

"The excellence of Workplace"

What do you like best?

Without a doubt it is one of the best options among so many in the world, this social network has led me to meet many people in my company, we have managed to interact in a work and personal way, it is very similar to Facebook, even better because it has no advertising that is bothering every moment. You can do many things, including those that I use more is the fact of being able to post news or strategies for much faster dissemination of information, just enter the beginning of workplace and see the news of your colleagues or companies added. It helps a lot in business production by the quick way in which information can be disseminated.

What do you dislike?

Well, really so far, I have not had problems with the social network, rather I am still delighted with the performance of that application, I think it came to stay, is purely business so one manages to stay focused on what corresponds, no distractions.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is one of the best creations of Mark Zuckerberg if what you need is to connect your workers so that they know each other, without any doubt this is an excellent tool. For the simple fact of being a social network makes everything easier to use, is intuitive, so identical to Facebook. I highly recommend it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Without any doubt the change that the telephone company has had with the arrival of this social network is remarkable, since the technical support managed to implement it, the staff has shown more empathy between them, we have managed to relate better, more in line with the current context that is basically based on achieving better interaction between the members of the company so that in meeting the objectives set by the company are carried out in a more friendly among workers. Every day we arrive and open the social network and see what's new to start the day in the best possible way.

"Great tool to connect with co-workers"

What do you like best?

What I like the best about Workplace by Facebook is that I can do everything including creating events, sharing information, making comments to other co-workers at my company. The second feature that I like the best is all about the interface and platform. There are very familiar to the majority of end users, allows for large scale adoption and increased use acceptance. Users can start using Workplace by Facebook with zero training and very effective for online and instant communication at workplace.

What do you dislike?

The downside of using Workplace by Facebook is about company confidential. Even though its feature allows users to share and update information, I still concern if our information couldn't be secured. Beside that, I don't have anything to complaint about. I would spend more time to explore more features using Workplace by Facebook.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We have used it to share really important links that help us acquire better research materials

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Even though I concern about its security, I still admit that using Workplace by Facebook can help our communication among co-workers more effective and updated by creating different group and different department.

"Good Experience with Workplace by Facebook"

What do you like best?

It has been very easy to use it in our office because everyone knows how this social network is managed. In this sense, we definitely can save a lot of time and money. Fully complies with functions that we generally take advantage of in my company because we have been able to create groups, create events, share files, videos, pictures and making instant and direct calls. In the same way, Workplace by Facebook has this tool which allows us to communicate with other suppliers around the world.

What do you dislike?

We don't have automatically language translation feature yet and we would like to have this for the company since we are dealing with customers around the world.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yes, I would recommend potential clients to develop a strategy designed to take advantage of this software from the labor point of view.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Improve customer relations and customer service

- Improve compliance & risk management

- Create internal/operational efficiencies

""Very good connectivity platform in any organisation to get new updates""

What do you like best?

Live Video enables users to broadcast live directly from their mobile and receive real-time feedback in the form of comments and reactions.

The News Feed is a scrolling stream of posts that uses Facebook's machine learning algorithms to keep people up to date with relevant company announcements.

roups are shared collaboration spaces where people can upload documents, leave comments, manage projects, and get work done with colleagues.

Workplace enables people to collaborate with external teams, partners or suppliers from within their Workplace account using secure and private groups, chats, and video calls.

Workplace Chat is an instant messaging tool that allows text, voice calls or video conferencing with up to 50 colleagues.

What do you dislike?

No Least for this, I Would rather suggest that, to those who haven't tried it, this is really a must try software.

I have sometime lost track of what I needed to do ,and expended precious time reading official posts and trending gossips on Workplace.

As of this time that I am using Workplace, I really do not see a thing that I do not like or need. All features are useful to our institution.

Data privacy is still a question mark... although, there are no ads here, I don't think FB will be using our data for other channels of revenue

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommendation this to others as it is having more advanced features than the other Tools.

The News Feed is a scrolling stream of posts that uses Facebook's machine learning algorithms to keep people up to date with relevant company announcements.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is very helpful to communicate with our fellow colleagues.

It helps to be updated on whats happening in an organisation.

With workplace i created a network of work with my colleagues and we kept in touch with each other, this has greatly improved our team work and our professional performance and super easy to communicate/coordinate projects with coworkers. I love you can create groups of just certain people. Creating events is also great for when you have meetings, etc.

It is Facebook for work - so I see so much engagement across our various global teams - we are starting to share work things with people, we have actually used the collaboration function to create documents together, and I get to see pictures from others - really, it's all the great things Facebook is for work!

"Great communication tool"

What do you like best?

I like the easiness of using this software. Its very user friendly, and if you're familiar with Facebook it is very easy to use. The program is basically the same thing as facebook so its very easy to navigate, and communicate with users. I like the fact as well that you can see how long ago they were active on the system.

What do you dislike?

I wish there was a way to sent an out of office if you're away for an extended amount of time (sick day, vacation), or way to let people know you're unreachable (ie meeting, or presentation) so that people aren't waiting for a reply for an extended amount of time if something is needed urgently.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a great system once you get the hang of it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Its an easy way to communicate with co workers, and its convenient that everything is in one place (Name, office location, phone number, desk location, city worked out of, and role in the company)

"Its just ok, and not exceptiopnal where it needs it most"

What do you like best?

It is affordable for a company social platform at $3 a user per month, and with chat included which adds to the value (though the chat isnt as good as purpose built options like slack exc.)

it makes for a great platform to make company internal announcements.

Facebook live integrates with our video conferencing system, Bluejeans, making webinars and events easy.

What do you dislike?

It really is just a port of facebook minus the ads, and just for your company and it lacks the integrations that we would expect from an enterprise app.

The chat is horrible, the notifications are awful and on the mac desktop app dont even use the built in notification system, instead using an in-app version. It also has no integration with things like google drive. Finally we cant segment users in the chat, making it so that anyone can contact anyone else.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

try it out, it is not a one size fit all. We are having some serious buyers remorse and poor adoption because it wasn't a perfect fit for us

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed a place where anyone could post as we restricted posing permissions to email distros to avoid the dreaded reply all chains. this allows people to still communicate as groups without cluttering inboxes

"Needs more attention to be useful but has potential"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that this is backed by facebook, which provides the confidence that this product will continue to be supported into the future (unless it fails like Google+).

What do you dislike?

It's just not there yet. We were looking for more of a minor task management platform that allowed us to get off of facebook messenger group chat and better organize our thoughts and plans. We, instead, are still using Google Docs. We'd really like to use this but it doesn't offer much that Slack or Quip offer.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We tried for a bit to get this to work for us so that we could stop using Facebook messenger and better organize our thoughts, plans, and tasks, but it doesn't really have a lot to offer to get us off of facebook messenger.

"Integra partners from different countries"

What do you like best?

Literally connects almost everyone in the company, we do not know all employees and it is almost impossible to know us but having everyone in the workplace, we have an idea of who is who and what their functions are. The co-workers know and connect with each other in an easier and convenient way.

In addition we can know what they are working in another country and how we can integrate what they are doing in ours. Undoubtedly it is a perfect way to connect people from the same company.

When they told me that if I knew this application that belonged to Facebook, I doubted it too, but it really surprised me.

What do you dislike?

It needs more collaboration functions, that is, collaboration and project management. Since it really works in a way to meet people but it could be something bigger and more impressive. The features are a FaceBook for work, and that's it.

The implementation has been very weak since no one knows that there is a corporate facebook called workplace that works like facebook. I think they should do more publicity and try not to just meet people but have more tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend it a lot. Everything that helps you connect with other people in different parts of the world is good

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a great platform to connect with new colleagues who are in different countries and are from the same company. We can also share daily updates and information through this platform but only up there.

I recommend it for other companies that have headquarters in different countries that is not a platform to discuss business issues but to know what they are doing in the other headquarters and who are the people who work in it.

"Easy Environment to share thoughts and ideas with co-workers "

What do you like best?

I personally love this product. Workplace by Facebook works exactly as you are expected. Our teams are often in the field for different projects and this product keeps us close together and give the best ability work and collaborate within our company.

What do you dislike?

It's actually a good product and very good at mobile version; however, sometimes, I'm still struggling opening my profile. It keeps just spinning, not loading even though our internet connection is very fast. I hope they can fix this as soon as possible.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's the best fit for your company so I would recommend it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Once of the best benefits of this Workplace by FB is Unlimited file, photo and video storage for our company. They have different languages support so that we can communicate with our buyers from oversea at no problem.

"Great Connection within the Company"

What do you like best?

it literally connects almost everyone in the company, it is convenient for larger companies as we do not tend to know all the employees, but by having everyone on workplace, we kinda have a clue on who is who and what are their roles. co-workers get to know and connect with each other in an easier and convenient manner.

What do you dislike?

nothing much. just that the new posts does not show up on the dashboard. you need to click in the created groups to look back on the past posts. it would be better if the posts are shown on a timeline basis rather than popularity basis. it would be easier to track on information or post shared earlier by co-workers

Recommendations to others considering the product:

it is a great platform to connect with new and old co-workers. we also get to share daily updates and information through this platform.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we are using workplace by facebook as a platform to connect to co-workers. a lot of important information and office functions are also shared and discussed on the platform. the greatest benefit is of course getting to connect to one another, especially getting to know new and old colleagues.

"Workplace is Just Another Facebook, Don´t Expect PM Tools"

What do you like best?

While the title says it´s blasé, I do like the fact that it operates and feels like Facebook. It´s familiarity makes it easier to use. It does keep work drama off personal ¨social¨ FaceBook, which is a big plus for project teams and call centers. I´ve used polls, discussions for creatives, status updates, and status of peers to be available for communication. We work remotely in five locations, three states, which made seamless cloud a must.

What do you dislike?

It needs more collaboration features like collaboration and project management. If I didn´t have to use something like Asana, it would help a lot. The features are a FaceBook for work, and that´s about it. Our feature implementation was weak, there weren´t many to use. We were better off just with Instant Message and Hangouts.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider that if you have Chatter (SalesForce) or other collaboration implementations, you don´t need WorkPlace unless you want to socially communicate off of the ¨social¨ personal FaceBook. It is featureless for project management or progress tracking, and really disappointed us.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I looked for coordination of projects. What I had was a way to share concept art. Beyond that, it really isn´t highly functional other than hiding projects from mutual non-FaceBook friends. It does move any work drama off FaceBook, and keeps my competitors in mutual circles from seeing anything we work on. Sales Training and Consulting is collaborative, but a bad break with our former employers made secrecy a necessity.

"My experience with Workplace by Facebook"

What do you like best?

I like that this program really helps to cultivate a social atmosphere in the workplace. It makes it much more fun to get to know coworkers when you have an electronic platform which to connect on. I used this program as a summer intern this summer, and found that Workplace by Facebook made it easier to connect to other interns in my local office, as well as across the country and world! One of my favorite aspects about Workplace by Facebook was the ability to follow pages within my own company. My company has a company pets and company twins page, and I thought that this was such a neat idea in order to make a more friendly and relaxed atmosphere in the work place, allowing for an easier flow of ideas and positive communication between coworkers.

What do you dislike?

My biggest qualm with this program is the amount of notifications that I receive. I get probably 7-8 emails per day with "updates", and even though I click "unsubscribe" on the emails, I still receive emails from a different category (apparently the unsubscribe button only works for specific categories of posts, and you have to go in and manually unsubscribe from everything to stop receiving emails).

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend others to really get involved in Workplace by Facebook! It is definitely one of those products where the more effort you put into using it actively, the more you get out of it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have realized the benefit of improved communication in my place of work.

"It allows us to organize our work better and develop it as a team"

What do you like best?

I like it because it allows us to organize our work better and develop it as a team, it makes collaboration much easier and it allows us to make video calls and group chat meetings.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing I don't like, it's a very useful tool to organize us in groups.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It offers a very efficient service that allows me to better coordinate the technological teams of our company.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Workplace is a very important platform for the organization of projects and teamwork, offers a friendly interface and similar to Facebook but only to work and share working documents, allows us to have a better perspective of how other departments work and how they are developing the work throughout the company.

"Great inner office Facebook page"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that this is viewable only within the office and not through other social media entities.

What do you dislike?

You can't copy pictures that you want to use for future use and/or be able to share with others through other social media entities. Especially pictures you post yourself.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Instead of constantly sending emails to make announcements, WBF is that outlet to use. Announcements of promotions and/or group events can be posted. Also it is a great place to have an inner office yard sale per se when people can sell their used or new items. You can also use the chat features to communicate with people with again not using email all the time. All postings are in real time so when there is a surplus of food in the breakroom, people will know immediately.

"Workplace is great tool for multi-departmental businesses"

What do you like best?

I love that it is exactly like facebook if it were only groups. So you have great flexibility in what you see and don't see. I work in vacation rentals, so there is sales, guest services, maintenance, property service managers, and marketing. But then there are groups created like "Social Post" "Photos To Share" "Health Club" and others that help all departments come together!

What do you dislike?

I'm not sure if you can or not, but there are certain people I would prefer to block, but that wouldn't be conducive to the point of workplace.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you have inter-department issues where you feel like there is a disconnect or confusion, this will iron it out quickly! It's easy to not know how much a person's job affects the company until you see how it affects you! That is easy to see on workplace.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Receiving and sending messages that are inter-departmental. Someone may not check their email often. But a message on workplace chat can be seen easily.

I also really like that it helps me feel connected to people I might not see often, but I know are valuable part of the company.
