Social media cost UK billions

British employment website, says that social network usage at the office could potentially be costing Britain up to 14 billion pounds ($22.16 billion). The Washington Post reports that the website polled 1,000 British workers and discovered that nearly 6% of them spent one hour or more during work on social networks like Facebook.

"Whilst we're certainly not kill-joys, people spending over an hour per day in work time on the likes of Facebook and Twitter are seriously hampering companies' efforts to boost productivity, which is more important than ever given the fragile state of our economy," Managing Director of Lee Fayer said in a statement.

How does your work day stack up with British workers? Are you browsing Facebook and Tweeting just a bit too much during your work day?
