Controlling Internet Use in the Workplace

SOCIAL MEDIA USE AT WORK

"Today’s workers are constantly connected, toggling between work email and Facebook pages on company computers and using their smartphones to access social media sites from anywhere in the office" (Toth, 2014).

"A 2012 survey report by Silk Road Technology shows that 75 percent of employees use social media for personal reasons daily on the job, with 60 percent doing it several times per day" (Mason, 2014)

DISCUSSION POINTS

Is use primarily personal or professional? 
Should social technology/media sites be blocked at work?
