Block Facebook

Block FaceBook, MySpace And Other Social Networking Sites From Your Workplace

Block FacebookOf all the work hours wasted by staff surfing, social networking sites are top of the list.

And according to the market research firm, Nielsen Online, more hours are wasted on blogs and social networking than checking and writing personal emails.

In fact one in every eleven minutes of work time is spent on social networking sites.

The biggest culprit is FaceBook with 108 million users globally, followed by MySpace with 81 million. Facebook usage has rocketed by 566 percent from one year ago and its not the young who make up the increase but actually the middle aged. With the most growth being in the 35-49 year old bracket, who accounted for an increase of 24 million users.

Bloxx can prevent staff from accessing Facebook, not just directly, but also if the user tries to get around the block by going via an Anonymous Proxy. Bloxx will identify and then block Anonymous Proxies 

As Bloxx is fully customisable, you could for example allow users to access social networking sites at specific times of the day such as lunchtime to maintain your staff's morale.
