Twitter, Facebook and Youtube at work??

According to a survey conducted by the University of Melbourne, employees who use the internet for personal reasons at work are 9% more productive than whose who do not, and among these personal uses include Facebook, Twitter and Youtube, along with others, like playing games, reading online news sites etc.

twitter fbyt1 = BETTER EMPLOYEE!!!

This survey has been carried out on people who are average internet users while working in the office (less than 20% time spent on internet for total hours in the office), it has been pointed out however that internet addicts will perform less well than those who don’t use internet at all while working.

So next time your boss is after your life for browsing or viewing a video at work or twittering, just point him/her to this article.

In some offices however it can be noted that the employers have installed proxies and configured them to deny access to these sites :P.

  2. LOL.

    Very hard to believe that Facebook and Twitter makes us more productive.

    I certainly don’t belong in that group. My productivity takes a nosedive whenever I get the internet.

    Oh, just wanted to share that although the firm I currently work at does block Facebook, it only does so before 5.30pm. After that, you’re free to use it. 🙂

  3. As Dhaneesha said, we dont have hi5 and facebook.
    Sometimes I understand this action from the management, since there are some people which abuse the use of those sites.
    Instead of working, they are on hi5 and facebook all day long.

    So, in this perspective, I prefer having these sites blocked as it is not normal that I am working hard and others are having fun during working hours.

    The managers can’t complain about employees remaining on internet all day as they are also addicted to it 😛
