You can now finally open a Facebook account blatantly during office hours as the social media giant company is reportedly working on a new business-centered social site that may be allowed inside the workplace. The upcoming site is named Facebook at Work.

Almost all business establishments have banned their workers to open their Facebook accounts during office hours. It is because the social media website has been a proven cause of distraction that causes delay and dilemmas in a business. On the other hand, as the advent of smartphones has been continuously increasing, banning of Facebook during office hours have become close to impossible.

So to be able to open a Facebook account legitimately, Mark Zuckerberg and the rest of his team are reportedly creating Facebook at Work. This new site "will allow users to chat and collaborate on documents with colleagues and connect with contacts."

In the present digital era, companies have been using emails to transfer and exchange important files and reports. Google and Microsoft are the most known email hosts while LinkedIn has been the most popular professional networking site.

Facebook at Work, which will share the same façade as its mother site, might be Zuckerberg's groups first foray in business-centric site. The new site might be combining the networking feature of LinkedIn and the email and file transfer capabilities of Microsoft and Google, thus, a face-off is indeed inevitable.

On the other hand, it is still a challenge for Facebook Company on how they can gain the confidence of professionals especially from the giant companies who exchanges confidential files through emails. "For the venture to prove a success, Facebook would have to win the trust of corporate IT chiefs and guarantee that information conveyed could not fall into the hands of rival businesses."

The social media giant, founded by the 30-year old Zuckerberg during 2004, has an increasing number of active users. Facebook is also considered one of the most used social media site.
