British social media in the workplace

Facebook is a drug33%

According to a survey by British job site Reed, roughly a third of of people access their social media profiles and networks while on the clock.  Of those who do use Facebook, LinkedIn, and the like at the office, 43% work in IT, 33% in engineering, and 27% in finance.  Of the chosen destinations, Facebook comprised an unsurprising 45% of the total with LinkedIn a distant second at 20%.

In other words, people in the United Kingdom are wasting a ton of time doing things that almost certainly have nothing to do with their jobs.
