I will not use a product supported by advertising for internal communication.

The demographic data they would mine would be invaluable to them, but for a company would be unconscionable to give to a third party. Especially one so historically lax about privacy.

You can mine my social life all you want, but when it comes to business, get the hell away.

Couldn't help but laugh out loud. Well said!

It does not.


Facebook at Work isn't going to be free. I also highly doubt they'll be touching any of the FB@Work data for mining, just like Google Apps for Business doesn't mine business accounts or serve ads.
