According to the New York Times, 50.2 percent of employers block access to social networks MySpace and Facebook over their corporate systems. 43.9 percent block MySpace, and 25.6 percent block Facebook. This information comes from web security firm Barracuda Networks which polled 2,400 of its own customers.
