Why is Meta killing its Workplace platform?

Launched 10 years ago, Workplace presented itself as a competitor to Google Spaces and Microsoft Teams for boosting internal communication, based on the concepts of Facebook and Messenger. However, the product was not profitable enough for Meta, as Facebook's parent company justified shutting down Meta to refocus on AI. The company had also bet heavily on Metavers at the time of the pandemic.

Beyond profitability, the market has also evolved considerably, and the needs of businesses are different from those of a mass-market social network, which made Facebook such a success. Although Workplace will be phased out smoothly, with free, read-only access from September 1, 2025 to May 31, 2026, organizations need to anticipate the migration to another solution, and perhaps take the opportunity to reconsider how they address their internal communication needs.


What are the alternatives to Meta Workplace?

A first solution could be to consider Microsoft Teams or Google Workspace. Although very relevant for certain specific uses, these solutions also have their limits: designed around videoconferencing and instant messaging, these solutions offer internal communication that relies mainly on individual information flows.

More comprehensive and evolutive Digital Workplace solutions, such as Jalios, maintain this social network dynamic, while benefiting from more structured communication and integration with the tools of the employee's digital work environment. It's not just about creating social links, it's about offering a genuine useful and efficient employee experience, to support all employees in their day-to-day work.
