What is WorkPlace?

 

It is a fun and work-orientated Facebook for your organisation. Think of it as keeping your work life and social life separated and being able to still have your work colleagues as Facebook friends but not having to share all your intimate pictures and moments with them. If this is what you have been looking for then WorkPlace is the answer. Workplace for Good have made the premium license ($3usd per user per month) available to all Nonprofits for free.
