    I think articles such as this are very important to businesses not as knowledgeable, regarding the management of their staff when using social networking applications, however, I think it should also be mentioned in the same piece that social networking DOES provide some legitimate business functions that businesses should research and become more knowledgeable about. But definitely, businesses should be wary of employee use on these networks and manage and control their access to them diligently.
