More CIOs Block Social Networks

Approximately 54% of CIOs report that their company policy completely prohibits employees from using social media sites such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter while at work.
Do social networking sites serve as useful tools for connecting within the business world, or are they simply time-wasters? More than half of enterprise IT leaders lean toward the latter perspective, according to a new survey conducted amongst 1,400 CIOs by the employment experts at Robert Half Technology. The results conform with data collected from a previous study released by Nucleus Research earlier this summer; this slideshow compares results from both studies to paint a picture of social networking in the workplace.
