Council bans Facebook for staff

Bookmark and Share

Social networking has grown significantly over the past couple of years and it seems that users are catching up online while at work.

This has led one council to ban Facebook from its computers, following a study that found staff have been spending on average around four hundred hours per month on the site.

Portsmouth City Council has around four and half thousand staff with access to a computer and so they have made the decision to ban the site.

However, crunching the figures comes up with the fact that on average the council staff are spending around five to six minutes per month each on Facebook!

The Council was unable to ascertain as to when the staff were accessing the site, and apparently this was allowed during breaks or even after work.
