Facebook’s annual F8 Developer Conference kicked off yesterday in San Jose, Calif., and the news quickly began pouring out of the event. There’s a lot of ground to cover in regard to Facebook’s enterprise play, Workplace, so hold on tight.
As many regular No Jitter readers will recall, Facebook launched its enterprise-focused collaboration product, Workplace, in October 2016 following extensive piloting that began as early as January 2015.
Since launching six months ago, Workplace has expanded quite a bit in customer base and functionality. Among the news Facebook shared this week is that it has grown the number of companies using Workplace from 1,000 to 14,000, with quite a few big company names among them, including Starbucks, Viacom, Discovery Communications, and Campbell’s, to name a few. Workplace is in use on every continent — even Antarctica — and is available in 77 languages, reported Simon Cross, Workplace product manager, in a company blog post.
