Does your company allow you access to social networking sites using business resources?

Some South African-based  organisations are of the view that web-based social networks such as Facebook do not add value to their core business, and thus discourage employees from using company time and resources for accessing such sites. I am interested to know what happens in your company. Please give me feedback as per 2 questions below.

 

This poll will close on Thursday the 5th of November 2009.

Thank you for your participation.

  1. We’re generally not only allowed, but also kind of encouraged, to stay on top of social networking tools, as we see any exposure that a client can get through these to be a step in the right direction.

    • Good to hear, KC. The poll stats as per latest count are indicating that organisations are open to employee access to the social networking sites. However, there are respondents who resorted to sending me an email with their responses because they cannot access my blog due to restrictions by their employers!

      Interestingly, some of the government departments, parastatals and agencies have restrictions. The excuse, I suppose, is exactly that they are linked to the government and thus there are information security issues. However, Obama continues to show the way in how he interacts with the electorate.
