Many managers are skeptical, if not resistant to the use of social networks like Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn and the like. The article below says it makes good business sense:
"As the CEO of a technology company with a workforce mostly under 40, I also questioned whether I should ignore it, prohibit it or encourage it. Eventually, I concluded that I need to encourage it, even embrace it. Tools are emerging that enable businesses to leverage social networks for online training and learning -- giving companies a compelling way to bring social networks into the workplace fold."
Or as the Borg (no, I am not a Trekkie) says:
"Resistance is futile."
