Social At Work

One third of American workers use Facebook at work every day. The time spent on the social website ranges from spending a few extra minutes to check messages, to spending a couple hours scrolling through the news feed.

Despite the time an employee spends on the social network, the truth is – 1 out of 3 employees will be on Facebook during the workday. Does this number surprise you? Did you expect more or less of a presence of Facebook in the office?

Facebook isn’t the only distraction. This chart from Mashable shows just how much other social networks are used every day during the 9-5 hours.


What is your company’s policy on social networks? Are they blocked? Encouraged? Do you think they’re a good occasional break from work stress? Tell us what you think!

Props to Mashable for this article: 29% of Americans Use Facebook at Work Every Day.
