During the COVID-19 times, when most of the business and companies are hitting the rock bottom and are witnessing a slack in the number of users, online workplace platforms are achieving new heights.
As the work from home has become a norm these days and is taken up by most of the companies, the connectivity has become an issue, making the employees and companies rely on online connectivity platforms.
Facebook Workplace which allows the users to connect with their entire company remotely has now five million paid subscribers.
Workplace saw the sudden surge in the number of their users in the past eight months especially after the pandemic brought everything at a standstill.
They celebrated it by making an announcement over their social media page, writing, “We welcomed 3m paying customers to Workplace in our first 3 years. We welcomed 2 million more in the last 8 months. Today, we’re celebrating everyone that’s helped us get to where we are. http://ow.ly/Tqjl50zLBLf”.
