To Tweet or Not To Tweet: Are Companies Allowing Employees to Use Social Media in the Workplace?

Today, companies are implementing social media policies of all shapes and sizes – and it’s no wonder why: every month we hear of another PR disaster because of a single tweet gone awry. This has led many companies to ban their employees from using social media, while others are taking the opposite approach, believing that a generation raised on technology is more productive when allowed to use it at their own discretion.

    Unless I am mistaken I believe you have transposed the figures in the graphic titled “Are Social networking sites actively blocked at work?”. If you look at the Proskauer Study I believe you are citing (http://www.proskauer.com/files/uploads/Documents/Survey-Social-Networks-in-the-Workplace-Around-the-World.pdf) on page 10 their graph for Question 4:
    Do you actively block access to social networking sites at work? shows 70.7% no and 29.3% yes. This is the exact opposite of what we see above. Cheers, Amanda
