Companies Blocking Facebook

Shel Holtz points out in a really thoughtful post that two-third of the companies in the UK are blocking Facebook. And then he goes on to explain why that makes no sense. I’m always amazed by companies blocking access to the Internet or to certain services outright, and agee with Holtz that the smart thing to do is to come up with parameters for how a service should be used at work.

Considering that the Internet is how so many people interact, and that social and professional interaction overlap so much, cutting off this kind of service outright makes no sense.
