Facebook Developing 'Facebook At Work' Site

"If I could get those reports from you by end of play that would be great. Also, have you seen this video of the cat making an omelette? LOL, am I right?" 

We're not quite sure when it happened, but somewhere between the de-tagging of incriminating photos and awkward unfriending of the boss, the above conversation has become normal in the world of Facebook. As more of us look to keep our work and personal spheres separate with the likes of LinkedIn and Google Circles, the California-based network giant is looking to provide its own 'professional' networking site, appropriately named "Facebook at Work".

Reported by the Financial Times, Facebook's rumoured new site will appear and function just like its current offering: users will be able to connect with colleagues (we're interested to know whether they'll still be referred to as 'Friend Requests'), read updates in their newsfeed, use instant messaging chat, share and edit documents. 

The service has apparently been used by Facebook's own employees for some time, allowing them to keep the sharing of cat videos and Friday night photos exclusive to their personal accounts while planning internet domination on their "at Work" accounts. The FT also reports that the service is currently being trialled by several large companies. 

We certainly "Like" the idea. Or whatever the career-based "Like" equivalent is. "Approve"? "Move forward on"? "Concur"?
