Employers & Social Networking Sites

I was contacted today regarding a survey being conducted by Personnel Today - the leading HR publication in the UK regarding the use of social networking sites at work and employers reactions to them and their use by employees.

If you are an employer you can take the survey by clicking here.

It is certainly a hot topic and one that is not going to go away anytime soon.

If you are an employee what do you think?

Is it right for an employer to use social networking sites to check up on prospective candidates or current employees?

Should your employer limit your access to social networking sites at work?

If you make a comment about your employer on a social network site in your own time, should they be allowed to censure you?

How far should it go?

I would be interested to hear your views.
