No Facebook; Will Quit
I confess that I am a big fan of Facebook. Not only has the site helped me to network with my fraternity, but it has also kept me hooked with my schoolmates. It comes as no surprise to me that according to a survey many young people (18 to 24 year old) would consider quitting their jobs if they were denied Facebook access at work. About 39% fall in this category say IT services provider Telindus. Another 21% said they’d feel “annoyed” by such a ban. 16% of the people in the age group of 25 to 65 would consider quitting. With this we notice that the younger the age group the more likely they are to be affected by such bans. However I still have to figure out why bosses have to be so rigid about employees using social sites. I use it, but I also understand my responsibilities and deliver my work on time.
