Facebook readies business version

FacebookFacebook is close to launching its professional version of Facebook – Facebook at Work (FaW).

That’s according to Reuters, which spoke to a Facebook executive who said that the “professional” version will look very much like Facebook Ordinaire.

Which prompts the question of why Facebook wants to have a professional version, seeing as practically every company on the world has now got its own FB page.

Apparently FaW will have better security, and will have different profiles for “professionals”.

FaW will find itself competing against Linkedin but apparently a number of companies including the Royal Bank of Scotland and Heineken are beta testing it, Reuters added.
