As Social Media Today reported, Facebook has launched a new groups option called ‘work groups,’ which, Facebook says, will help people “connect with their coworkers more easily.” The option seeks to reduce the need to connect with every person you work with, and let them into your more personal interactions. By creating a specific group only for work colleagues, you can keep the two elements separate, with only your work-related information showing up in your work group profile.

The option also enables work group members to send messages to each other, without needing to be Facebook friends. This is great news for those who want to keep their personal and professional lives separate – which is something most business people should do. Bravo Facebook!
