I’ve been enjoying a recent discussion on the LinkedIn Social Media 4 Insurance group focusing on whether or not companies are blocking access to social media sites at their places of business.

Some of those responding to the question say their firms allow no such access, while others report that some sites—including LinkedIn—are allowed because they are perceived as more “business friendly.” Meanwhile, some social media, including MySpace and Facebook, are excluded as being too “personal” in nature. What I don’t see, however, is any kind of consensus on what the best practices may be, assuming one is going to allow employees to use social media while logged on to the company’s network.
