Facebook has rolled out Workplace, a competitor to Slack.
Must apply for membership and are not free
The point of the service is to make it easier to communicate internally in companies: one gets an entirely separate login separate from the private Facebook account.
The service is not free, moreover, one must apply to join. The price is $ 3 per employee or 2 or $ 1 depending on the business size (larger = more affordable – active users). This is far cheaper than Slack taking over $ 6 for the standard package.

- Analysis tools for IT folks
- 1 to 1 service for administrators
- Secure collaboration between companies
- Single sign-on support
