For years now, Facebook has been a site for avoiding getting actual work done.
But now, that might change, as Facebook gets ready to debut a secret project called Facebook at Work, according to USA Today.
Facbook at Work will “allow users to chat with colleagues, connect with professional contacts and collaborate over documents,” the Financial Times reported.
The product would look like Facebook, but act more like a hybrid of Microsoft Office, Google Drive and LinkedIn. It'd let you keep your personal and work profiles separate, USA Today reports. And many Facebook employees are already using it.
The "cloud-based office" space is getting crowded, as Microsoft's iconic Office heads to the cloud and Google Drive, formerly Google Docs, keeps adding features. How Facebook would differentiate itself from these popular services is unknown as of now -- Facebook didn't respond to USA Today's requests for comment.
