Work Kicks Facebook to the Curb
Facebook chat won’t be destroying AIM use in the office anytime soon. Libraries aren’t the only place that banning Facebook use—this year, 69% of employers surveyed put a stop to social networking during work hours, according to Online Recruitment.
This is quite a step up from only 34% of employers who decided this was a smart move last year. With the ability to click from one friend to another person’s profile to someone’s photos and groups, time goes on and before you know it, you’ve wasted an hour of work on…nothing.
And don’t think that just because your boss isn’t peeking over your shoulder, watching you browse your News Feed, that he or she doesn’t know about it. Informational technology departments have ways to monitor usage on the network, so nothing is a secret. Don’t become one of the many people that 79% of employers had to discipline for using social networks without permission. Tsk-tsk, back to your cubicle. But wait, isn’t that where this problem started? [Online Recruitment]
