Workplace from Meta is an online platform specifically designed for communication and collaboration between teams and individuals at organisations of any size. It includes many of the same features as Facebook such as messaging and groups, but segregated from Facebook for use in a private context.
Workplace from Meta is an online platform specifically designed for communication and collaboration between teams and individuals at organisations of any size.
Workplace from Meta comes with a familiar user interface as well as a whole host of useful features for organisations.
You’ll get Facebook features such as messaging, live-streaming, News Feed, and the ability to create groups for any project.
Nonprofits also get unlimited file and video storage through Workplace, as well as the ability for people to collaborate across different organisations.
Premium features – for free
Larger organisations may be especially interested in capabilities that include single sign-on, Active Directory support, and integrations with other applications such as the G Suite, Okta, and Windows Azure AD.
With Workplace Premium, you get admin capabilities to help better manage your teams, and it’s secure — you own the rights to your data. It also includes free one-on-one support for Workplace administrators.
Workplace can be a great, free alternative to similar collaboration platforms — and that’s especially true for the premium version. It may also prove easier to adopt organisation wide since many of the features work in a similar (or identical) way as they do in a personal account.
