More companies block Facebook!

Canada.com reports that In the past six months, there's been a 20% increase in the number of companies blocking Facebook, Twitter and other social networking web sites.
Their report is based on a study released by ScanSafe, released this week.

James Norrie, the associate dean and professor at Ryerson University's Ted Rogers School of Management, harshly criticized the trend. He said that banning employees from using social-networking sites is "one of the most awful things businesses can do to themselves."
"The whole notion of trying to take technology away from (workers) is as good as spanking them and sending them to their room," said Norrie.
I can't think of a better way to say it!

  1. This software program Time Doctor uses a better method than blocking Facebook because it only monitors Facebook in work hours. So team members can use it when on lunch. Also some people must use Facebook for work purposes so it's silly to indiscriminately block it.

  2. Access Facebook Vietnam can be a pain. Fortunately, there are workarounds to unblock Facebook and other popular social networks no matter where in the world you find yourself. Unblocking Facebook in Vietnam will allow you to communicate with friends and family. It is also an excellent way to promote your business, or to find exclusive deals from businesses.
