Agency Policies Regarding Social Networking

As social networking continues to gain in importance as a tool for employees to connect and collaborate, there appears to be a clear divide developing between those who are permitted access to these tools by their agency and those who aren't. I attended a recent meeting of a number of agencies, and through a show of hands there was a roughly 50-50 split between those permitted access and those denied. As the State continues to bring in young minds who are used to relying on these tools every day, which agencies do you think will be in a better position to attract and retain these valuable people?


Agency CIO's should get together to weigh the value these tools provide against what they see as potential losses in productivity, and develop a more consistent policy and plan for permitting access.
