Although, its exact cost has not been disclosed yet, but several people informed that companies of any size would be able to sign up for Facebook at Work through social network’s main site. Furthermore, companies would be given the opportunity to try this service without getting charged for few months. With more than 5 million users, the executives are hoping Facebook at Work will offer considerable revenue as compared to the advertisement in the core product.
Facebook at Work can be profitable for Facebook for getting every member of the company signed up, from the executives to the assistants. And if it does not stick, the companies do not have to pay for the empty seats.
The subscriber of Facebook at Work would be able to use the special feature “Work Feed” of posts from the colleagues in order to share ideas and assume tasks. It will also offer Groups like Messenger including video and audio calling options to compete with Skype and Slack. Plus, it also provides social network’s profiles, Events, and Live Video features.
The biggest strength of Facebook at Work will be its familiarity since people already have a login, password and they know how to use it so it ought to find on-boarding users easier as compared to SaaS (software as a service) tools. The quick registration will definitely help it leapfrog competitors who are often considered confusing or foreign compared to the consumer software. Employees can generate totally separate accounts for business if customers prefer it for the security purposes.
Diversifying the revenue streams beyond its advertising could help Facebook increase its bottom line without losing its users in the marketing.
