We restrict fb, youtube, twitter, myspace etc for 95% of our users. If we didn't then users would procrastinate heavily and our internet usage would skyrocket.

social networking for business is the way forward so companies need to get with the times, yes restrict facebook personal account etc but dont restrict the flow of information that could benefit your business.

You just wanna spend precious time on FB. I'm all for the restrictions.

Social Networking can expose sensitive information and can also affect the PR of a company, and I am talking in terms of normal means not in terms of hacking and malware etc... We don't even allow the use of webcams or skype on our systems.

I'm all for restricting social, but it gets a bit hard when your a digital agency where it's part of your work...

Blocking social media probably saved many networks from the round of fake Google+ invites going via email pretty sure many will fall for it.
