Company that allow users to access Facebook in the workplace lose an average 1 to 1.5% in total worker productivity

Facebook lovers, here is another survey showing how employee productivity is robbed at workplaces. So put a limit on its usage before employers and the bosses put a stop on its usage at work.

While it won't make employers popular, restricting Facebook can reclaim lost productivity.

A new study by Boston IT advisory firm, Nucleus Research finds that, company that allow users to access Facebook in the workplace lose an average 1.5% in total worker productivity.

Nearly half of employees in the recent 'social net-working' study use Facebook during work hours some as much as two hours per day.

The average worker uses it for 15 minutes a day, and most couldn't come up with a legitimate "business reason" for logging on.

The survey of 237 employees also showed that 77% of workers who have a Facebook account use it during work hours.

And "some" employees use the social networking site as much as two hours a day at work, the study found.

Nucleus Research did not say how many workers fit into that category, but did note that one in 33 workers surveyed only used Facebook at work.
