Wasting time at work….
We all make a big deal out of Facebook, it’s place at the cusp of the social networking hierarchy, Web 2.0, etc… but isn’t it just a great way to waste time, check out what others have been up to, and find out if your girlfriend from grade 10 ever finished high school?
Following up on Anthony’s post on a recent study of the depth of Facebook “friendships,” another study has been released that finds that Facebook use costs upwards of 233 million work hours every month – the equivalent of £130m ($264m USD) per day as a result of what they term “wasting time” on Facebook. The research, done by employment law firm Peninsula, is based on a survey of 3,500 UK companies, and concludes that “businesses need to take firm action on the use of social networks at work.”
So if you’re a boss, or better yet an employee, does Facebook actually lead to any productive activity at work? Or is it simply a drain on your organization’s productivity? For obvious reasons, I’ll omit my colleagues from this discussion.
