Should companies prohibit employee from visiting Facebook while at work? Interesting proposition. It seems the same old rules that we have followed, should be modified to a certain extent. There are indeed productivity issues involved and some companies say that security issues are involved as well. Therein lies the dilemma, how do we evolve into a workforce that embraces technology, while safeguarding larger concerns of productivity and security? The majority have the view that visiting Facebook should not be allowed while at work.
A recent USA Today poll posed the question, Does your company policy prohibit employees from visiting social-networking sites while at work? Sort of a running poll. The respondents gave a pretty predictable answer.
Yes completely 54%
No, but some limits apply 35%
Flat out No 10%
Don’t Know 1%
Where do you stand on the issue I would like to know?
