More than half (54%) of chief information officers nationwide say their companies don’t allow employees to access social networking sites for any reason while at work, according to a new Robert Half Technology survey. Another 19% permit it for business purposes only, 16% allow it for limited personal use and 10% allow it for any type of personal use. The survey involved 1,400 CIOs from companies with 100 or more workers.

A separate CareerBuilder survey found that 45% of employers report using social networking sites to screen candidates—more than double the number from a year ago. President Obama pointed this out to schoolchildren in a September speech, telling them, “Be careful about what you post on Facebook … It will be pulled up again later somewhere in your life.”
