Facebook has deployed a new tool called Facebook Workplace. It essentially serves as a way for companies to share content with their employees through a medium similar to the newsfeed feature on the original Facebook site.
There has been some controversy though around the “content control” feature that allows organizations to essentially keep certain phrases from being posted. And in Facebook’s in-house demonstration of the new feature, they poorly chose the word “unionize” as its example. Cut to, a lot of employees upset about their labor rights.
Ironically, this came shortly after some Facebook workers held a “virtual walkout” earlier this month.
