Employee Use Of Social Media Is On The Rise (And Twitter Leads The Way) [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that Twitter is the most-used social networking site by office employees, ahead of Facebook and LinkedIn?

Initially frowned upon – if not outright banned – the use of social media in the office is very much on the rise, as employers start to understand the benefits of these tools and how they can be best leveraged for office productivity. While less than half (43 percent) of firms have a completely open policy towards social networking, fewer than one in three (< 30 percent) block these channels altogether, and the number of organisations restricting access to these platforms is dropping by around 10 percent each year.

This infographic takes a closer look at social media and workplace collaboration.
