Facebook Workplace arrives with matching Work.Place gTLD domain

ZFBot

Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, announced the launch of a new service today, named Workplace.

So what exactly is Facebook Workplace?

According to Zuckerberg’s statement via Facebook:

Facebook Workplace.

Facebook Workplace.

“One day, we realized other companies would benefit from using these tools and being more open as well. We started letting a few organizations around the world use our tools — now called Workplace — and the feedback has been very positive. Now more than 1,000 organizations are using Workplace.

Today we’re making Workplace available to any company or organization that wants to use it. Everyone’s experience on Workplace will be different, just like everyone’s experience on Facebook is different.

But I think Workplace will help more companies create the kind of open culture that encourages people to connect and share. You can learn more by visiting workplace.fb.com or by following the Workplace page.”

It seems that Facebook also acquired the gTLD domain Work.Place which currently does not resolve. WHOIS information shows the standard MarkMonitor contact details.

The domain changed hands twice recently, and it’s possible that Facebook used the services of a proxy buyer.

Dot .Place is operated by Donuts, Inc.

Thanks to Russell for the tip.

Update: The WHOIS information for Work.Place now shows the corporate Facebook address. It’s official! 😀

    Edward – Congratulations 😀 Not many can claim such fame of having sold a domain to a large corporation, let alone, Facebook!

    Hope that it was very rewarding!

    I wonder if they will buy workplace.com and how much they pay 🙂 8-10 mln $ ?

    and what about other “work” related domains, I mean for example workaccounts or workpayments…we will see

    Karim – I have a hunch the .com price was exceptionally high to be acquired. It’s definitely worth $10 million for the domain alone. But it’s an established business, so they’d have to factor in a potential domain rebranding.

    i like Work.Place way better than long ass workplace.com

    and do you think facebook doesnt have enough money to buy workplace.com if they really wanted to?
    give me a break

    For me the question is not if but when Facebook buy Workplace in .com I think they will pay for rebranding and of course price will be very very high.
