Companies Blocking Facebook

According to a report last week by anti-virus vendor Sophos, close to half of the companies they polled block access to Facebook. Only 8% allowed access because of fears of a backlash.

Companies were concerned about cyberloafing on the job more than anything else. Yes, there was also the concern about identity theft or loss of company secrets. Interestingly, there was no mention of the possibility of XSS, a threat on social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace and others.

Sophos has tips for Facebook safety with a list of recommended privacy settings.
