Facebook is no stranger to jumping into technological uncharted waters. It’s tried such attempts with its messaging service and even on the hardware front (reference the terrible HTC partnerships). Now the company looks to be pursuing a new venture, in which it looks to make communicating with co-workers much easier. According to the Financial Times, the social network is developing “Facebook at Work,” a solution that focus on chatting with employees, while connecting with business partners and collaborating on documents.
Zuckerberg and Co. have yet to comment on the recent leak, though word is the feature is set to roll out sometime in the near future. Apparently, Facebook employees are utilizing the work-focused site, as well as some outside companies. Will this cut into Linkedin and Google Hangout’s market presence? It’s a possibility, though nothing is for certain until the public experience’s the trail run.
