Should Facebook be banned at work? If this is a topic you’ve been grappling with, the video below might help to shape your thinking.

Dr Nicola Millard speaks about her frustration with organisations who recruit via social networks only then to block these in their work. She highlights the irony that they are banning the very networks they recruited them from.
