Great point here. What most businesses fail to consider is the fact that their employees need a bit of "leisure" time in front of the computer. That means going to Facebook, Twitter, etc every once in a while to maintain the sanity at work. If you totally block access to those, it could be counter productive. What we've done was to just implement this non-invasive time tracking software called Time Doctor (http://www.timedoctor.com) that efficiently tracks our work time while ensuring we are still productive. We are not prohibited to go to Facebook. But, we are alerted and be reminded that we are working everytime we do so.
