Accessing 'social software' from the workplace

I recently became of aware of a very interesting and ingenious attempt to build a picture of what 'social software' employees can access from the workplace.

Here are some details:

So let’s try and build a picture of access to social media tools from the workplace.

Please run my social media test suite survey from your workplace machine and let’s see who the blockers are.

I’m happy to publish here, or in the survey results you can see when you complete the survey, any appropriate explanations or justifications from IT providers.

I know there can be good reasons for limiting access, and we should separate those from the bad ones.

Take part in the research (providing you are at work right now) by clicking here.

Hi James,

First of all I want to thank you for having a very informative and helpful website and blog. The information is comprehensive and useful.

I wanted to tell you about the job club I started here in Tacoma, Washington (; perhaps this would help some of your readers. Our goal as a group of proactive job seekers in a common geographic region (Pierce County, Washington) is to share resources, encouragement, and accountability in our job searches, no matter our age or difference in background. The method was prescribed in What Color Is Your Parachute? 2009, but it's taking on a life of its own.

See today's NY Times for proof that we're on to something:

Check out our site; it's still growing, and we still use the social networking site ( to communicate and schedule meetings, but will hopefully be adding some of that functionality to our own site soon. I'd really love your feedback on this!

Thanks again for the dynamic and interesting blog, and please keep up the good work.

Warmest regards,

Zak Nelson
