96% Of Indian Firms Prohibit Social Networks At Work

Cisco recently released figures that show that roughly half (52%) of IT decision makers say their company has a policy prohibiting use of social media applications or collaboration tools. The report finds that while social media tools may be a rave among a section of Internet users, enterprises, particularly in India, have restrictive policies that prevent their employees from using these to their business advantage. In fact 96 percent of the country’s IT decision makers admitted to prohibiting the use of social media tools in the workplace.
