Enterprise platform Workplace From Facebook added a Safety Center and made some improvements to its live video experience.
Safety Center was described as “an evolution” of Facebook’s Safety Check feature, and it is designed to give organizations more capabilities to check on employee safety and manage communications during a broader range of safety incidents, including providing travel advisories and safety alerts during the pandemic.
And Workplace From Facebook users can now go live with multiple presenters, enabling companies to share information and bring different voices from inside and outside of the company into the same broadcast.
Light analytics will also be added to video broadcasts via the platform.
Workplace From Facebook said its goals for 2021 are to expand the platform’s reach in connecting communities, bridge the distance between colleagues via synchronous and asynchronous communication and help small and midsized businesses better connect their organizations.
