This week Facebook made some changes to their Facebook at Work service.
From today, the service will be named Workplace by Facebook and will be available to the public.
It has been in a beta testing phase with a number of companies over the last 12 months, with more than 1,000 companies around the world now using the business focused version of Facebook.
Facebook explained more about it with the following:
The workplace is about more than just communicating between desks within the walls of an office. Some people spend their entire workday on the go, on their mobile phone. Others spend all day out in the field, or on the road. We’ve been amazed by the breadth of organizations who’ve embraced Workplace — from a shipping company that can now connect with their ship crews using Live video, to a bank that now uses Workplace instead of fax machines and newsletters to share updates with its distributed bank branches. Large multinational companies like Danone, Starbucks and Booking.com, international nonprofits such as Oxfam, and regional leaders such as YES Bank in India and the Government Technology Agency of Singapore have all embraced Workplace. People work in different ways, around the world, and Workplace’s mission is to help them stay connected.
