Facebook Workplace vs Salesforce Chatter

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.
Salesforce Chatter
With Chatter, it’s easy to work together and know everything that’s happening in your company. Updates on people, groups, documents, and your application data come straight to you in real-time feeds. It's better than alternative solutions for Salesforce users.

2017 - Facebook introduced bots into Workplace to fight Salesforce Chatter

Facebook announced a bunch of updates to its Workplace by Facebook team communications tool. The company is also introducing bots into the Workplace experience in both Messenger and Group chat, which puts it on par with what Slack has been doing for some time. These bots are powerful entities, which you can call upon to help out. For instance, if there is an equipment problem, you could call on @repairbot to find someone to fix it. Developers can build bots for work chat and for Groups to do tasks like help order food or order a Lyft.  Workplace also gets new integrations with Box, Microsoft and Quip/Salesforce. That means when you share a file in a Facebook group, instead of just a link, you’ll see a thumbnail and when you click it, you go directly to the file for editing or commenting.
