Facebook Takes on the Workplace

Facebook Takes on the Workplace

Facebook might be the bane of employers, but the company presents a more business-friendly side with Workplace-- a stripped down version of the social network designed for enterprise collaboration.

Previously known as Facebook at Work, the collaboration system is similar to the likes of HipChat at Slack. It includes all main components of the social network, including the news feed, events, groups and messages, only within an ad-free system installed on enterprise systems and accessible on either browser or mobile device app via separate account.

Interestingly, Workplace also features a collaboration with Box-- users can access files corporate Box accounts directly from the Workplace interface, with no need to switch between separate apps. The process works in reverse, meaning one can save content from Workplace to corporate Box accounts.

Google Proposes Drone Conferencing

A recently awarded Google patent reveals a novel use for drone technology-- conferencing, with small quadcopters carrying the screen, video camera and audio equipment required for the task.

Simply titled "Unmanned Aerial Vehicle for Collaboration," the patent describes a system used for both normal telepresence and videoconferencing. It allows users to "interact and engage with the participants" by controlling a drone around the place. In other words it is an evolution of the conferencing robots we've seen previously, only the iPad-on-a-Segway is replaced with a quadcopter.

"A mobile telepresence system may be included on a robot which may be remotely navigated by a user, for example, throughout spaces in a work place," the patent reads. "Such a telepresence robot may be remotely navigated, for example, through corridors, into and out of offices, conference rooms and other work spaces, and the like. However, the size and energy-consumption levels of this type of telepresence robot may hinder its ability to effectively navigate complicated spaces with limited open floor space for the robot to traverse. Additionally, this type of telepresence robot cannot traverse stairs, and would require on-site human intervention to access a work space on a different floor using an elevator."
