Facebook at Work, professional of Facebook version of its social network, is expected to launch in the coming months, after spending a year in tests, a company executive said.
The new service, geared towards workplace collaboration, is nearly identical to its ubiquitous social network, with a scrolling news "feed", "likes" and a chat service.
"I would say 95 percent of what we developed for Facebook is also adopted for Facebook at Work," Julien Codorniou, director of global platform partnerships at Facebook, told Reuters.
However, Facebook at Work users will maintain special profiles that are distinct from their existing Facebook profiles.
The company is also developing exclusive products for Facebook at Work, including security tools, Codorniou said.
