Facebook Adopts Microsoft Office 365, as Corporate Email Shifts to Cloud, by Steven Rosenbush, Wall Street Journal, July 13, 2016

Social network will move its 13,000 employees to Microsoft’s web-based tools

Facebook Inc. is adopting Microsoft Corp.’s cloud-based Office 365, a sign that email remains a critical business communication tool, even among the most forward-thinking pioneers of collaboration platforms.

Facebook has launched Facebook at Work, a workplace version of its social network, as readers of CIO Journal well know. Yet email still has its place, even at Facebook, according to Tim Campos, the company’s CIO. “Facebook at Work doesn’t end the need for email,” Mr. Campos said. “It’s not a binary thing.” And research has shown that social tools for business are taking off more slowly than expected in an environment where getting things done is the key.
