Facebook’s F8 developer’s conference is in full swing, and the latest reveal is all about Workplace, the business version of the popular social media site. Facebook announced new integrations for cloud, bots, and security, as well as the release of the Workplace Live API to support RTMP streaming.
Facebook also announced that Workplace is now used on every continent—including Antarctica—by over 14,000 organizations. Those numbers seem big, but how do they compare to competitors like Slack? And the addition of several prominent cloud partners, bot makers, and cloud compliance firms looks good—but is it enough to make Facebook Workplace a real player in the collaboration market?
