Should I block employee access to Facebook?

Restricted Access Featured Image Should I block employee access to Facebook?

I wish I had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked by small business owners if they should block social media access to their staff.  My answer is always no.  Social media represents an enormous opportunity for small businesses to increase sales, better connect with customers and partners, and market themselves in a cost-efficient manner.  Besides, if you block social media platforms at your work, your staff will simply use their phones to access Facebook.

So if there is no way stopping your staff using social media whilst at work, how do you ensure they are doing so responsibly and not placing you or your business in any potential harm?
