Slack’s Stewart Butterfield Doesn’t Fear Facebook At Work

The first question I asked ’s CEO and co-founder Stewart Butterfield was a selfish one: when will the app get threaded comments, so TNW’s editorial team can use it full time. Sadly, he could only confirm that they’re “coming soon,” one of a bunch of new features that the app, which hit a $1 billion dollar valuation late last year, has in the pipeline.

This week Facebook unveiled Facebook for Work. It raised, once again, the topic of social networking tools within organisations and it brought me top this interview with Slack co-founder Stewart Butterfield. If you haven’t tried it then give it a go – it is a lightweight type of Yammer and is great for comms around projects. I like Butterfields comments on ‘institutional memory’. Aren’t these the tools that will bring to light much sought after ‘tacit knowledge’?
