Facebook standardizes Workplace pricing, boosts cost for larger deployments

Facebook has changed the pricing for its Workplace enterprise social network, a move that will result in price increases for some new customers.

Workplace was officially launched at the end of 2016, following a lengthy, 18-month beta trial with large enterprises such as Royal Bank of Scotland. The platform is now used by more than 30,000 organizations worldwide and has recently won over some large customers, including Walmart and Virgin Atlantic, where it is accessed by 7,000 staff.

Workplace has two payments tiers: a free Standard version (launched in April 2017), and the paid-for Premium tier, which offers additional features for larger businesses such as admin controls and third party integrations. Up to now, the Workplace Premium tier was based on a staggered pricing model, with organizations paying less for larger deployments of the software. Customers were previously charged $3 per active user for the first 1,000 active users; $2 per active user for the next 9,000 active users; and finally $1 for each additional active user.

Beginning today, Workplace Premium will charge $3 per active user regardless of the size of the deployment.
