Facebook has been one of the highly used social networking platform with a massive 1.35 billion monthly active users worldwide. The company is now said to be secretly working on a new website called "Facebook at Work" to get a foothold in the market for professionals.
The new website will come to compete with the likes of Google+, Microsoft and LinkedIn and others. According to the online reports, the new website would allow users to "chat with colleagues, connect with professional contacts and collaborate over documents."
As far as the appearance of the site is concerned, according to other online reports, it will be visually resemble Facebook, with a newsfeed and groups, but users will be able to keep their personal profile private. "Facebook at Work could also challenge Google's drive, email and chat products and Microsoft's Outlook email service."
The concept of 'Facebook at Work' was first reported by TechCrunch earlier this year, who revealed that the project is being developed by employees in London.
"We are making work more fun and efficient by building an at-work version of Facebook," a source reportedly told the technology website at the time.
However, it is not sure, when the new "Facebook at Work" site will be launched. The multibillion dollar firm has not spoken about it formally as of now.
