Facebook surfers cost their bosses billions
CANBERRA (Reuters) - Workers surfing the Internet social networking site
Facebook could be costing their employers billions of dollars in lost
productivity, an analysis by an Internet security firm said on Monday. Facebook
is the latest Internet networking craze, with more than 230,000 Australians
already signed up and reports of more than 100 new users every hour.
Internet security company SurfControl looked at the phenomenon, and found
Australian workers who keep a close watch on their Facebook profile page were
costing their employers up to A$5 billion ($4 billion) a year.
"People love being there and telling people what they are doing right now,
what their thoughts are right at this second," SurfControl chairman Richard
Cullen told Australian radio.
"It's so interactive that people just get addicted to watching their Facebook
groups all the time."
