German companies have blocked Facebook access

10 November 2010, by — admin ()

FacebookLargest German enterprises have recently blocked their employees from accessing popular social networks at work. This includes Facebook, Twitter, as well as Youtube among the others.

Mentioned companies include car manufacturers like Porshe, Volkswagen and Daimler, banks like Commerzbank, Heidelbergcement — a construction material factory, an energy concern E.on and chemical products producer — Linde.

Company executives are confident that employees using social networks at work pose a security risk. Such employees could potentially leak confident data or expose company computers and networks to viruses.

According to researches, 56% of German companies consider using social networks at work insecure. Another 30% of companies does not see a direct security threat but regard social networks as a general distraction factor, which degrade performance.
