My list of social media termination timeline is one of my most popular blog posts of all time. And with Facebook’s new Facebook at Work product that just launched in beta, it’s something that will continue to be at the forefront of managers and business leaders minds. This week the Facebook at Work app is available for download in the app stores but only for a select few companies. Social media is still a huge hot button when it comes to workplace privacy. Social media and sites like Facebook are also a great place to communicate. I recently tried to go on a Facebook hiatus that only last 3 days. I rely on Facebook for my work conversations and communications. It was crazy!
