TechCrunch: Facebook At Work To Launch Soon


THAT BACK. LOOKING FORWARD TO WELLS FARGO WHEN THEY DECIDE TO CONTACT THEIR CUSTOMERS. MANY OF US USE SOCIAL MEDIATE A ALL HOURS OF THE DAY, AND THAT INCLUDES WORK, NOW FACEBOOK IS ENCOURAGING IT. FACEBOOK AT WORK IS EXPECTED TO LAUNCH IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. COMPLETELY SEPARATE FROM THE PUBLIC SOCIAL NEAT WORK. IT OFFER THEIRS THE SAME LOOK, FEEL, AND FEATURES, BUT WITH DIFFERENCES, LIKE NO ADVERTISEMENTS IN THERE. THIS IS A TOTALLY SEPARATE ACCOUNT. YOU HAVE TO MAKE A NEW FACEBOOK PROFILE FOR THIS. THE COMPANY E-MAIL ADDRESS IN THAT KIND OF STUFF. AND COMPANIES HAVE TO USE IT. I THINK THIS MAKEs SOME SENSE, BECAUSE WHEN YOU INTRODUCE A NEW INTERFACE INTO AN OFFICE — EVERYBODY KNOWS HOW TO USE FACEBOOK, SO IT’S A SIMPLE CHANGEOVER. WOULD YOUR COMPANY WIFFLEFULLY ALLOW YOU TO PUT WHAT COULD BE SOME CONFIDENTIAL STUFF ON A THIRD PARTY SITE LIKE THAT? I DON’T KNOW. WE’LL SEE. WHAT IS THE OUTLOOK, IT’S THE MICROSOFT PRODUCT, BUT WE HAVE AN INTERNAL INTERNET. YOU CAN SEE HOW MUCH I USE IT, I DON’T EVEN KNOW — YAMMER. WE TONIGHT HAVE YAMMER. COMPANIES HAVE A NEED FOR THIS SORT OF PRODUCT, THOUGH, TO SHARE IDEAS, SHARE INFORMATION. LIKE I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT IT IS. SO I THINK USING FACEBOOK IS VERY ATTRACTIVE, WHERE YOU SAY, LIKE, BOY, EVERYBODY IN THE BUILDING KNOWS HOW TO SET A PASS WORD, KNOWS HOW TO UPLOAD THINGS. LIKE IF YOU’RE I.T., YOU MIGHT BE RUNNING SECURITY CONCERNS ON ONE HAND, VERSUS THE NEED TO BABY-SIT. BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BABY SIT ANYBODY. I THINK THAT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE. THE ONLY THING I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THIS IS IF THEY ADD IT ON TO YOUR ALREADY BUSY WORK DAY, SAY BE, OKAY, NOW WE’RE GOING TO ADD THIS FOR ANOTHER WAY TO COMMUNICATE. THINK YOU’RE REPLACING SOMETHING ELSE, THAT’S GREAT, BUT — MAYBE FEWER PHONE CALLS, FEWER DISCUSSIONS, FEWER MEETINGS, LIKE THEORETICALLY, YOU CAN TIGHT THAT WAY. AND E-MAIL, IF WE COULD GET RID OF THAT, THAT WOULD BE GREAT. AND FARMVILLE. I HAVE BLOCKED EBB WHO HAS EVER SENT ME A GAME INVITATION, INCLUDING MY MOM, ON FACEBOOK. BLOCKED YOUR MOM. YEAH, FROM THE GAMES.
