This article builds on the results of a new survey conducted by Nucleus Research, Inc., a Boston technology and advisory firm, concerning Facebook usage by office workers. Some of the more interesting findings:

  • 77 percent of respondents had Facebook accounts.
  • Of those, nearly two-thirds accessed Facebook during work hours, spending an average of 15 minutes daily on the site.
  • 87 percent of those accessing Facebook during business hours couldn’t define a clear business reason for doing so.
  • 6 percent of Facebook users only accessed Facebook at work, meaning one of every 33 office workers built their entire Facebook profile during work hours.
