Facebook Workplace vs Yammer

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.
Yammer is revolutionizing internal corporate communications by bringing together all of a company’s employees inside a private and secure enterprise social network. Although Yammer is as easy to use as alternative consumer products like Facebook or Twitter, it is enterprise-class software built from the ground up to drive business objectives.

2016 - Facebook launched enterprise social network Workplace to compete with Yammer

After two-year testing Facebook at last opened the enterprise version of its social network called Workplace. It's the copy of Facebook, but separate for each company. Employee accounts are not linked to their Facebook accounts. Otherwise it provides the same social tools: profiles, newsfeed, groups, chat, live-presentations, video-calls. The pricing starts from $3/user/month. The product will fit large companies that intend to build a team from hundreds and thousands of employees that don't know each other. Of course it's not the first internal social network on the market, but may be Facebook knows some secret ingredient and will revolutionize the Enterprise (like iPad, that wasn't the first tablet on the market). For example, if many companies deploy Workspace, and Facebook adds inter-corporate social tools - it may give interesting results.
