The new service called “Facebook at Work” will allow employees to have work-friendly chats, connect with business partners, document collaboration and increase storage facilities.
It will look like Facebook with news feeds but will offer work and personal pages, the Financial Times reported.
The enterprise-friendly version of its service will take on Google, Microsoft and LinkedIn, it added.
It is not known when the professional site will launch, but it will reportedly be free initially.
Workers at Facebook have already been using the work-focused site for a while, the report said.
