Social Media At Work: The Downside

Learnstuff.com has an interesting infographic about the downside of workers and students accessing social media in between tasks. It is US-based, so needs some translation for us Limeys in Blighty.

Nevertheless, there are some sobering thoughts here. I guess this is the converse to yesterday’s post. Perhaps I should tell you to get off this blog and get back to work!

I visit that site periodically and look for ways to waste time, but don’t find too many. The other sites, youtube and FB being the worst, are probably true wastes of time.
