Employees sweet on social networking

Life after graduation
Employees think that their bosses could make good use of social networking sites, such as Facebook, to help improve business, new research suggests.
Figures compiled by emedia show that nine-in-ten workers believe that their firms could make use of the websites to help their company grow.
Almost two-thirds of respondents thought that the sites would be useful for firms to exchange business ideas and a further 58 per cent thought that bosses could use the networking opportunities to get advice.
However, workers who used Facebook were concerned over the security of the site, with 62 per cent worried about their personal information.
But this didn't stop them from frequently visiting the sites. Almost a quarter admitted that they use their favoured networking websites every day.
Recently a student protest via Facebook forced high street bank HSBC to abandon plans to charge graduates 9.9 per cent on their overdrafts.
