Is Social Media Costing You Money?

Social media is becoming a primary resource for individuals and busineses to stay in touch and keep abreast with the latest news, information and technologies. While we encourage this method we also advise employers to stay on top of the use of this valuable Internet tool so as not to let it become a hindrance to your company.How often have you passed by an employee’s desk and noticed Facebook, Twitter or other social media web sites displayed on their computer screen? In a worse case scenario, are members of your staff surfing content which would ordinarily be considered inappropriate, unprofessional or even pornographic in nature?

Other employees who may be offended by this type of content may bring legal action against your company for not making an effort to control this type of behavior. This is known as sexual harassment or creating a hostile environment and can result in very costly legal fees.

Various surveys from companies such as America Online and have found that Americans waste more than two hours a day at work costing their employers nearly $760 billion in lost revenue. This time is wasted surfing the Internet for personal use. With this knowledge, and understanding the nature of the scenarios above, the majority of businesses are looking for a solution to resolve these problems.

Install the Appropriate Technology

A simple yet relatively inexpensive method to help combat this problem is installing technology that monitors Internet usage allowing companies to keep track of the content accessed by employees, record keystrokes a user enters or even scan the content of an email for signs of personal use. This can be very effective but can also consume a considerable amount of time and has no guarantee of completely resolving the problem.
