(How) should you manage smart phones and Facebook usage by employees?
KATHRYN STEINER, MBA, Entrepreneur, United States

It seems that some in the millenia's may have challenges dealing with new technology, which is distracting them from tasks required.
Employee checking Facebook during meeting...I have to manage my communications, and learned today there is software designed to help people limit their time spent on Facebook etc... If they cannot manage this aspect of their lives themselves...
As a potential future business owner, I believe that I would be somewhat irritated at employees continually checking their smart phone or other devices, particularly while in a meeting.
Is it OK to have everyone place their telephones on the table...? And, taking that a step further, how about the security aspect and risk management when cellular devices are present...
What is fair to all involved, employee and business owner/management?... Register
