You’ll be shocked—shocked!—to learn that employees use instant messaging for personal conversations. You’ll be equally shocked to learn that employees stop in the hallways for personal conversations.
This time around, it’s the Meta Group that has released a survey that shows 57% of the respondents from 300 organizations “admitted” using IM at work for personal reasons. Did they really admit they use IM for non-work purposes? Or did they shrug and say, “Well, yeah, of course I do.” The survey also found that 56% of the participants also use their home IM capabilities to do work.

Wonkette’s Ana Marie Cox makes no apologies for posting exit poll results, even though mainstream media avoids the practice for fear of swaying election outcomes.
