20% of Americans Can’t Access Facebook at Work

Twitter is a close second, with 15.1% reportedly blocking the site.

I guess I should be shocked by this. I certainly see how management (other unenlightened managers, thus excluding myself!) could see all social media as a giant time suck, but, for me, and for others that must react to news and perceptions during the day, it’s simply essential that we’re plugged in all the time. #getwiththeprogram
