Pros

I love how easy it is for someone to put their talents on display and how easy it is for me to find them, helped a lot to find great people to partner with.
Workplace has given me the opportunity to connect with other independent business owners with similar interests and values. It is a secure platform we feel safe sharing motivating content.
I'm very pleased and happy with this product. It's helping me to stay connected and be productive in all areas online.

Pros

What I enjoy most about Zoom is its ease of use, ability to record meetings, and its affordable price point.
The cost benefit is very good and ease of connection, I can share the screen during meetings, and excellent for my work.
The fact that it is easy to learn, as well as the quit and helpful response from customer service. I am glad it was recommended to me and I will continue to help others by doing the same.

Cons

Don't even use it anymore due to the massive spam and inability to turn off notifications.
I disliked the large amount of notifications that are received from the groups that I participated. This impacts directly on my productivity at work, because it spent a considerable amount of time.
Probably the biggest complaint I've heard concerning Workplace is the price as it is a bit on the expensive side for what it does.

Cons

I think we were so overwhelmed by the zoom at this bad time that there is nothing to worry about.
If I do have problems sharing my screen, etc. then I have to typically leave zoom and re-enter the meeting. It always solves the problem but is an annoyance.
There has been a few times where Zoom doesn't work well with my internet and I'll randomly be dropped from calls with no warning.

Great collaboration app

Reviewed 2 years ago

Will recommend this app. Great for the whole team to meet for a set given information pool.

Pros

Ideal for your meetings to take place sharing your project information or for those important meetings. Helps me to keep to deadlines within a project with the team. Good communication platform for all levels.

Cons

Takes a little longer to set up than others out there but once set up it is good to use as it’s easy to navigate.

Familiar and Effective

Reviewed 5 months ago

Overall Workplace from Meta made team communication a breeze (and allowed for fewer in person meetings!!)

Pros

This platform is very similar to Facebook. This made most users instantly understand how to navigate and use the tools. The ability to build groups within the team is great for getting the proper information to the proper employees without having to read through posts and news that was irrelevant.

Cons

Sometimes notifications would keep coming in on the same post that has already been viewed, even if there was no new comments or activity.

Overall, workplace is a software that can work great in a working environment but some things like the video calling are more necessary for zoom.

Pros

Workplace is very great for communication with other people you work with and is an easy way to contact bosses and coworkers.

Cons

There are better video calling softwares that I would prefer to use than workplace but it’s still good enough.

Pros

Not much. I didn't see the point of it and found no value in using it.

Cons

It's completely pointless as far as I am concerned. Getting staff to log in to this through Facebook to get messages and communicate is just distracting. I'll stick with e-mail and texting, and old fashioned things like "meetings".

Saira's review on Workspace from Meta

Reviewed 7 months ago

Overall experience is very good. I enjoyed working on Meta. As online meetings are the coolest feature for me. Real-time chat is also the best option, we can easily be in touch with far apart team members.

Pros

The ability to host online meetings is the coolest feature for me because of the excellent quality of the photos and the potential audience size.

Cons

Keeping track of the tasks allocated to teammates by tagging them in posts is still inadequate.

Collaborate and Communicate easily within your organization

Reviewed 2 years ago

The experience with Workplace has been satisfactory. I do not use it much as we require it just for information purpose. We already have solutions in place for Video calls, Meetings and IMs. So Workplace is just used for information sharing.

Pros

Workplace by Facebook is somewhat a replica of Facebook but this is for a particular organization to communicate internally. The employees can use it just like Facebook and create groups, chat, share pictures, host video calls, group calls and everything that Facebook offers. Its a great tool to use for internal communication.

Cons

There are no cons as such in Workplace by Facebook. It works pretty well. The features it offers for internal communication are redundant I will say because most of the organizations will already have a solution in place for IM, Meetings, etc.

Good for group settings

Reviewed 2 years ago

I typically work alone these days, but for times when I did work in a team setting I found Workplace by Facebook to be more than adequate. Is it better than Skype or Zoom? It could be!

Pros

Workplace by Facebook allows users who are working together to communicate easily and more efficiently. I always found it easier to use than going through the trouble of writing an e-mail or sending a text. The auto translation feature is very interesting.

Cons

I did not always see that there were unread messages. I don't use Facebook very much so I'm not as familiar with how their products work as someone who uses it everyday would be.

You can message any employee of the company using workplace. you can start discussions, create groups on workplace, create an event. You can also post announcement you want to make through workplace.

It helps by keep everyone updated on what is happening in the office and it's perfect for project and time management. I use it all the time to check on other people's projects and progress.

Easy, Familiar, Fun Communications

Reviewed 3 years ago

We use Workplace extensively for communicating with employees and keeping the company calendar. Any meetings we have are shared live, and those who can't be there in person can watch and comment questions or comments that we can see and address in real time during the meeting. The video remains on the page after the meeting, so there's no excuse for not knowing what happened during a meeting. Most people are familiar with Facebook, so there isn't really a need for training. We all keep closer contact than we otherwise would because of questions asked on the feed and conversations often arise. It connects employees who might never have connected if it weren't for their interactions in Workplace.

Pros

Workplace allows us to communicate with employees, schedule events, post pictures and videos, educate them, host live videos, etc.

Cons

It doesn't have any task management features. I feel like task management functions could be added to make the functionality more complete. Since we're hosting meetings in there, having conversations, and keeping the company calendar, it makes sense that we should be able to assign tasks and keep track of projects there, too. But, that doesn't seem to be a part of it.

Pros

My manager would post status letting us know when department meetings would take place, also post things like employee of the month and stats for the periods. It is very helpful as its based from my person Facebook page so I don't have to create any new accounts to access.

Since it is tied with my personal Facebook, sometimes I would miss updates if we were not personal invited on the update itself. Fortunately, you are able to place alerts on the Workplace account that sends an alert whenever a update is posted.

Pros

Its feature is very similar to Facebook, thus it is very simple to use. Also, I enjoy how the platform can be used for meetings and group calls. The finest feature for me was its good user experience and the vast number of people who could participate in the video conference.

Better Team Communication with Facebook

Reviewed 3 years ago

Workplace by Facebook experience has been good overall. It delivers what it says it will and does so with minimal issues and next to no learning curve.

Pros

Workplace aims to get your entire team on the platform to streamline communication. This could be anything from short chats, to video meetings, group chats, to collaborative digital workspaces. It does everything fairly well. Because it is based on Facebook it is familiar and that helps with the learning curve and the dedicated application is useful aswell.

Cons

Facebook, regardless of how you package, has always had the same issue. Terrible customer support. If you do have an issue you will have a hard time finding answers or talking to a real-life human being for help.

Facebook for business - a nice tool with some opportunities

Reviewed 2 years ago

By the time that I started using Workplace, we had a switch in our way-of-work and it helped us during this period of time. But later, when our work returned as usual, another systems was installed in our computers and we switched to the system. I guess workplaces still need some improvements for business, but in general, it was a good experience.

Pros

The best feature for me was the video meetings functionality, because of the great quality of the images as well as the number of people that could be in the video call. Another important functionality was the file sharing system between groups on the platform, because of the ease-of-use and the possibility to transfer larger documents.

Cons

I disliked the large amount of notifications that are received from the groups that I participated. This impacts directly on my productivity at work, because it spent a considerable amount of time. Another thing that I disliked was the fact that I was inserted on many groups without my permission. I believe that if the platform sent me a notification with a request to accept to join the group, my experience could be better.

Workplace by Facebook Overall Experience

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, we have a place where a group can work together and can have their meetings on their own. Easy messaging in case someone is not around. However, not all people or countries really familiarize this tool. It still needs more push to make the company employees use the platform rather than using others.

Pros

Personally, as Digital Marketing who is knowledgeable with different types of platforms, I really like it. However, some of my colleagues who are Saudis does not like Facebook and workplace features almost the same as regular Facebook. Overall looks and design are very user friendly.

Cons

Yes. The translation. Since this is for business applications, I think it makes sense that the messaging through workplace chat should have a feature for auto-translate. If this can be done, many none users of workplace will have to use the workplace to communicate with the team. It could break the barrier of language deficiency. Integration really is not so good, especially when creating chatbots or linking it to tasks scheduler.

Workplace FB is a great platform for professional collaboration across the team

Reviewed 5 years ago

I am able to collaborate with the team so easily. Since it is fine-tuned for professional needs it fits perfect for our team communication. Everything such as groups, chat in a single place. Since it has mobile apps, I am able to be available all the time. The UI is easy and neat. Perfect for scheduling meetings and checking availability.

Pros

1. Since it is like a miniature of FB, it is very easy to use 2. Perfectly fits for the professional needs 3. It has a workchat platform integrated 4. Easy to share links and create events 5. Good for free plans 6. It has Groups,chat,video call feature 7. Easy to share the ideas and get it reviewed

Cons

1. Still in the chat there is no direct message to message reply option 2. It still has some bugs, such us even though a feed is seen, the notification will still be on in group.

Works but still needs more options

Reviewed 2 years ago

It’s good to have this as an option for the workplace. Saves us time and money from not traveling as often.

Pros

Zoom is a stable, it also has great breakout rooms.

Cons

I like using zoom but it needs to be simplified. Also it’s a lot more costly than other options like Google meet.

Zoom Meetings

One of the best video/audio conferencing tool

Reviewed 3 years ago

My overall experience with Zoom is excellent. It helps me in connecting with all the stakeholders at one place just from my workplace. Coordination with whole team becomes very easy.

Pros

There are so many features i like in Zoom but one of the most liked is it's ability to add multiple people at once in a single session. Unlike other similar tools where there is limitation on number of people you can add in a single session.

Cons

There is no option of downloading the whole session which I think is the need of hour. I don't want to waste my time in organizing similar session again and again. Instead I would be glad if i can download the session and share it with everyone who needs it.

Overall Zoom has been a great tool for the workplace and my family and friends.

Pros

In a time with employees, family, and friends working from home or staying in more Zoom provides an opportunity to still connect and catch up.

Cons

There are connection issues from time to time and the screen has a tendency to freeze, maybe not every meeting but still fairly often.

Zoom Meetings

Organize meetings and remote work very easy

Reviewed a year ago

This program is a very good way to support people from various companies, I could also check the status of the connections and I could maintain servers. Fully recommended for learning and for the workplace if you have constant meetings.

Pros

This program allows a wide range of options -Allows business meetings -Work from home in a very simple way -Offers the opportunity to gather several people, share a screen, control another user's screen and have others control your screen in case you need help. -It is a great tool to make presentations of work and important projects.

Cons

-The limitation of the free version is a drawback, if you are in a meeting with more than 2 people, there is a limit of 40 min, but this is solved with the business version that is not so expensive. -I had some issues sharing screen control, sometimes the mouse was unresponsive, but very seldom. -Controls are not as intuitive when making a video call or screen sharing, but once you get used to it, no problem

Zoom Meetings

The best web conference tool currently available

Reviewed 8 months ago

Overall, I am very satisfied with zoom. It is full of features & functions which is extremely beneficial for my workplace.

Pros

It has been a game saver for us during the covid situation. Our whole university went online & the zoon meeting software has been a blessing for us from that time. It is affordable, compact in size, requires low hardware & network usage & has tons of features at this price point. We conducted our classes, & meetings online through zoom. It has a great audio & video call quality with meeting recording options. The recurring meeting option is also great.

Cons

Zoom is a great meeting software though Its integration with third-party software is not well developed. The UI needs some more refreshments.

Zoom Review for Seminars

Reviewed 3 years ago

Helped me to participate in seminars at my workplace every month. I enjoy the experience with this application.

Pros

I loved the seamlessness in the training that I had with this software monthly. I enjoyed it and the slideshow feature too.

Cons

This is just my personal opinion. I prefer the desktop application to the mobile one as I feel it has more features.

Zoom make working remotely possible.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Zoom lets me work remotely without missing any content or personal interaction. My campus also uses zoom to gather people from across the campus in a virtual meeting.

Pros

I am a consultant working three states from home. Zoom allows me to work remotely some weeks. This keeps down travel expenses. Zoom has features (live video, speech through the computer, screen sharing, chat, more) that make remote meetings effective and worthwhile.

Cons

In my current workplace, I have to rely on an administrator to set up a zoom meeting. I would like to be able to do that more "on the fly."
