Re: Big brother is watching
@technocrati: quite correct. I don't allow any of my subordinates to browse shopping sites. They may browse social media and adjacent news sites on work but as long as they fulfill their duties. I used to allow online shopping because I myself am an online shopping freak, but I stopped after I saw because of me management had to take a blow from the chairmen.

@Brian.Dean   I agree.  Professionalism is very important and it is great that you point out that there are times when shopping online does serve a business related purpose, but we have all seen those who do everything but work with their computers.

I am not sure those who spend all day on Facebook while at work could actually live without it.   This is a decision a company will have to make.

Re: Big brother is watching
Individuals should display a high level of professionalism at the workplace and make a distinction between, company resources and personal resources. Every situation is unique and there can be times where shipping online is beneficial to the company for instance, an employee ordering winter shoes because they do not want to slip or feel cold during the walk to the subway. And, if the company is in the retail business then, a few employees might actually have it in their job description to keep track of the marketplace.

Big brother is watching
I think once companies start punishing employees for doing other things at company then people will become serious.  My friend was telling that at this office, people are using Facebook, shopping, etc.  As the article said, once they start cracking down, it could impact your performance at the end of year.  The HR person could say, you didn't get a raise because we could you multiple times doing other things and not work
