Facebook Banned at Work

Yesterday there was a lot of buzz on the web about Facebook being banned from workplaces. Apparently close to 50 percent of all businesses have banned the site. Supposedly in the U.K. more than 70 percent of businesses have banned Facebook and similar social networks. This seems like an extremely high number of businesses.

Only one of the places that I have worked in the past three years banned access to social sites. Now that my job surrounds Facebook, I certainly am not banned. My guess is that most of the readers to this blog have not been banned at work either. Although maybe this is where people come when they can’t get on Facebook. Are you allowed to access Facebook from work?
