Are You Wasting Your Work Time on Social Media?

Social media, eh…

Where would we be without it?  

And what a great resource it is for TV work – finding case studies, jobs, stories and the rest of it.  Most TV employers are very relaxed about employees using social media. You are after all working in a media environment.

The question is, how much time do you, or your employees, spend on social media? And how much of it is really to do with the job in hand?

This graphic was sent to me by and I felt the urge to pass it on to you!

What do you think? Is our time spent on Facebook, Twitter et al a good thing – or a bad thing? Please feel free to leave your comments below.
