Charting the Industry: When Social Networking Gets Personal


A July 2011 study by legal services firm Proskauer illuminates the scope of and potential problems that social media usage brings to the office—and beyond. “Social Networks in Workplaces Around the World,” which polled 120 companies—most of them global—has compelling findings, including: • Just over a quarter workplaces actively block employees’ access to social networking sites, and a similar percentage monitor employee use of those sites. • Nearly 40% of businesses have had to deal with employees misusing social networks, and nearly a third have taken disciplinary action against employees for misuse of social networks. • Nearly half of the companies still do not have social networking policies. That last bullet may be disturbing enough, but the study also tackles the thorny topic of employees’ use of social media outside of work.
