Banning Social Media – a good idea?

Banning Social Media – a good idea?

I am really against banning social media – especially with the reasoning of the work performance. To me, this is a management job, not a technology job and by banning social media to make people more productive – I doubt that this is really successful.

Now, I read this article: Why Banning Social Media Often Backfires which is definitely worth reading! as it goes down the road I just mentioned above.

  • I'll do you one better. Our local school board voted to ban the use of Social Media by teachers to contact or inform any student.

  • Great post! The think the decision to try and block social media is driven by a lack of understanding of the technology. It is such an important technology, and taken as a right by most youth, that we can't stick our heads in the sand and hope the issue goes away.
