Facebook Is Costing Your Company $10,790 Per Year
I check my Facebook before I check my email...it's true. If you are the same way, you might want to know that because of our obsession with Facebook it is KILLING AMERICAN BUSINESS.
According to a new survey by Arizona Republic, the average employee's social networking costs their company $10,790 a year in lost productivity.
So a 1,000-person company is losing more than $10 MILLION annually because of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and the rest.
The average worker surveyed said they never go more than 15 minutes at work without an interruption . . . both work-related ones like emails and calls, and non-work-related ones like web surfing and Facebook updating.
The general ratio is about 60-40 electronic distractions to more traditional distractions.
Two-thirds of workers say they've read emails, tweeted, or checked Facebook during a meeting.
