LIKE YOUR JOB? Report says Facebook may be building an office version of its social network.

Facebook is reportedly building an at-work version of its social network, according to TechCrunch.

But would you like it if your company insisted that work communications all took place in Zuck’s little blue boxes?

TechCrunch’s source claims that FB@Work, as it’s referred to, could be used in place of email or IM.

“Everyone at Facebook uses Facebook for work”, one ex-Facebook employee told TechCrunch.

“Most of their communication and planning is done through Messages and Groups. It’s a really fast and efficient way to get things done.”

But would you want to chat that way? Or do you prefer good ol’ fashioned email?

On the one hand, it’s nice to have a separation of church and state. On the other, it’s not like you’re not on Facebook all day at work anyway.
