Facebook is infiltrating your office with the release of a new iOS and Android app called "Work," which will initially only available to a limited number of companies participating the pilot.

The new app isn't exactly the Facebook you are used to. It's an internal social network designed as a communication tool for companies to collaborate on projects without using email.

In other words, it's not for watching cat videos, it's for doing your job.

The new app uses the same interface as the standard Facebook app, but the information is private within your company, and you can create individual groups for specific projects.

Users can create a separate login or link their personal accounts to the professional accounts, but the information posted for work stays in the Work account.

There are no ads and it's free at the moment, but Facebook will most likely charge a subscription fee at some point, according to WSJ.

What Famous Companies Would Look Like With Black Metal Logos

Since 1977, artist Christophe Szpajdel has designed over 7,000 logos for metal bands ranging from black metal to death metal to pure depressive black funeral doom metal. His latest release of artwork takes a more lighthearted turn, reimagining the logos of famous companies with a little bit of unholy, mutilated, gutgrinding, necrotic demonrage mixed in. Fun!

As you may have heard, Facebook purchased the mobile messenger Whatsapp for a whopping $16 billion dollars this week, equating to over $40 per user of the program. What is Whatsapp, you ask? Take a trip back in your brain to 2002. Remember AOL Instant Messenger? mIRC? Miranda? Yeah, it's that but on your phone. That's it.

I remember when Gmail sent me a notification about ads a couple months ago. It said something like "we're working to get you better, more high-quality ads." I just thought "Okay? I don't really care?"
