In some organization, employers face the problem to know that their employees more into socializing than working. What some employers don’t know is that, being in the environment of social networking can be a great asset to a business. They always think that when employees socialize, they have this negative feeling that it’s a way of having fun instead of doing work. In some cases, this might be true and it’s a big problem and is the potential loss of productivity. Otherwise, they can actually change the way the organization do business and boost up its productivity.
