Facebook Workplace vs Jive

Facebook Workplace
Facebook Workplace is business alternative to Facebook. Connect everyone in your company and turn ideas into action. Through group discussion, a personalised News Feed, and voice and video calling, work together and get more done. Workplace is an ad-free space, separate from your personal Facebook account.
Jive’s enterprise social networking platform allows you to engage employees, customers, and the social web. Increase the efficiency of internal communication, build brand loyalty, and monitor customer chatter and ideas, all from one central location. Say good bye to your intranet, multiple logins for scattered enterprise apps, and being out of the loop; the Jive Engage platform integrates the social networking tools you love and need so you can focus on what matters.
