Faceblocking; could this be a threat to Facebook’s growth?

July 30, 2007

In a growing trend, the Telegraph reports that many firms are blocking access to Facebook over fears that employees are wasting time on the site. MySpace and others have been banned too. It’s testament to the huge popularity of Facebook that this has happened, it’s only in the last three or four months that Facebook has really taken off in the UK, and already people are desperately trying to keep employees off it.

Will this hurt Facebook’s growth? I don’t think so, users will visit the site in their own hours instead. Is it hurting companies productivity? Social networks are the second biggest culprit of in work time wasting after web based email, so definitely, or this type of article wouldn’t be necessary!
