1. 'Facebook at Work' to launch next month
Facebook is set to release Facebook at Work, its enterprise communication and collaboration tool, in the next few weeks according to sources close to Facebook.
The platform will launch to compete with the likes of Slack and Salesforce's Chatter, providing a work-centric News Feed and Messenger platform (complete with audio calling and live video) meant to help colleagues exchange ideas and assume tasks.
The application will be charged on a per-seat, monthly active user basis, meaning brands won't pay unless employees stick to it. Some large brands, including 100,000 employee-strong Royal Bank of Scotland, are already on board for launch.
