Facebook announced a partnership with Blizzard Entertainment: All of Blizzard’s games, from “World of Warcraft” to “Diablo 3” to “Hearthstone” to “Overwatch” will be instantly streamable – live! – on Facebook Live. You push a “Go Live!” button, there’s a short countdown (3….2….1), and you’re off to the races, live streaming your game directly to Facebook in high-resolution. It’s easy to imagine just such a future on everything from your iPhone to that PlayStation 4 in the living room.

Facebook’s CIO,Tim Campos has announced that over 13,000 employees will move on to Microsoft Office 365. The IT organization at Facebook is focused on having the most productive workforce possible and the foundation for Facebook’s continual innovation is the ethic of collaboration that empowers everyone to bring their best ideas to the table.

Campos wrote in his blog that Facebook needed the right technology to empower employees, while also ensuring our business is safe at all times. “This is why we’ve implemented Office 365. Not only is it a mature and comprehensive platform, it meets our stringent security standards, it complements how we work with intelligence, flexibility, and it is continually evolving. It is globally deployed, accessible on every mobile platform we support, and it is secure. Most of all, it enables our productivity with powerful new capabilities for employees, such as the ability to share and edit traditional Excel documents at the same time, across devices”

He also wrote that team is excited about how they can leverage the Microsoft Graph within their own internal Facebook tools and services. This will help the employees sift through the noise by surfacing the information that is most relevant for them.

“As Microsoft continues to innovate with Office 365, we will continue adding and rolling out more services that have value for Facebook. In that way, we’re not just buying the capabilities that Office 365 offers today. We are also buying capabilities that Microsoft will offer over time, and expect even greater things to come”, added Tim.
