WorkFace: The Social Network for Work

Starting next Monday, we’re rolling out a beta of our new internal collaboration social networking application. Get ready for WorkFace: The Social Network for Work.

WorkFace will connect us like never before. Not in strange ways though, because use will be heavily monitored by HR. It’s like how you can’t yell “fire!” in a crowded elevator, only you also can’t write or imply (explicitly or implicitly) anything negative about the Company, its executives, products or business partners. Choose one of three fun avatars!

Training sessions are being held at 12pm and 1pm every day next week. Those of you unfamiliar with social networks should attend the 12pm session, as the 1pm training assumes basic understanding of social media technologies. If you’re unfamiliar with the terms “social,” “media” or “technology,” the 12pm session is for you, and will blow your mind. Lunch will not be served!

WorkFace is an extension of our hallways. If you wouldn’t show a colleague your penis there, don’t upload a picture of it on WorkFace.
