Facebook knows it’s not cool to be caught on Facebook at work, which is why they just launched “Facebook at Work,” so they can truly be tapped into and spy on our online activities at every single waking moment.
So what is it exactly? Well, the British fellow narrating the promotional video will tell you that it’s all about forging connections and building morale and getting things done more efficiently and with more input from various employees, but allow me to let you in on a little secret: Facebook at Work is just Facebook. Even some of the posts offered as examples in the video read like the most annoying status updates from the folks I went to high school with you got “real jobs.” There are hearts and emojis and those weird giant “stickers” and people complaining about working late with responses like, “get some sleep!” Kill me now.
Given the fact that one of the gentlemen featured in the video is wearing overalls in the workplace, we can infer that FAW is targeting hip companies who don’t play by the rules of traditional corporate environments. If you work at that sort of place, I suggest you quit now before this monstrosity becomes part of your everyday life.
And, as the video makes clear, FAW will not revolutionize your workplace, because the textile that Fox Fabrics makes with the help of this social media nightmare is ugly af. Burak, who suggested that the team “add some orange” (ew, just no) probably doesn’t even work in the design department. Smh.
