You would think IT managers would know better.
Well, at least I would think that.
But, according to IT Week, a new survey of IT managers shows a majority in favour of banning Facebook and other social networking sites in the workplace.
I can well imagine situations where personal use of computer systems is a bit iffy – not least air traffic controllers – yet I can’t help thinking that many employers need to be a little more balanced in their approach.
They still invariably see potential pitfalls of social networking in the workplace, rather than possibilities and opportunities it could present.
It remains a long path to enlightenment.
Perhaps these IT managers haven’t got many “friends”, or don’t get poked as often as they had hoped?
