A survey by the company Samsung Electronics showed that 40 percent of workers across Europe denied access to the social network Facebook in the workplace, while a third of them (32 percent), the prohibition does not pay attention and use it in any case.
Bearing in mind that individuals largely use social networks at the workplace, the company Facebook launched a pilot version of the service ‘Facebook at work’. This service, regardless of the personal profile, regular Facebook features such as news, groups, and events, which will be able to be used exclusively in companies in order to facilitate internal communication and collaboration.
“Service ‘Facebook at work’ is another example of the continuous impact of consumer technology in the workplace. Employees today want and expect to have access to the same products, services and commodities and at work, and at home. Our research has shown that three-quarters of workers ending personal tasks at work, and vice versa, as well as mobile devices managed by this trend because 40 percent of workers use the same smartphone for work and personal purposes. It seems that companies now can, using the right way consumer technology, to satisfy the expectations of employees and enable greater worker productivity and well-being, “says Rory O’Neill, director of Samsung Mobile Europe.
The survey also showed that 32 percent of workers mixes business and private life because they believe that in this way do more work at the same time, but also because they think they are both less stressed.
