History repeating itself
About ten years ago corporations often blocked Hotmail and AOL from employees. It is amazing how many times in the last month I’ve heard about this same behavior going on with social media. I know that looking at pictures from a neighbor’s BBQ on Facebook is quite dangerous but let’s get serious. Using this logic, then corporate IT should also turn off all access to Web browsing, blogging and personal emailing.
I wonder when businesses will get comfortable with these new media and trust that employees can act responsibly?
