Monday, October 26, 2009 / UK / Business - Twittering workers cost business £1.4bn


More than half of office staff spend 40 minutes a week on social networks such as Twitter and Facebook for personal use while at work, costing businesses an estimated £1.4bn ($2.3bn) a year in lost productivity, according to a survey.

Out of 1,460 workers surveyed by Morse, an information technology services provider, 57 per cent said they used social networking sites during the working day for personal use.

On average, those people spent 40 minutes on these sites each week, equating to just under a full working week being “wasted” each year, said the company. / UK / Business - Twittering workers cost business £1.4bn
