You May Not Want to Start Marketing With Facebook Just Yet

Perhaps if you work at a U.K. firm, you best not take my earlier suggestion about using Facebook as a marketing tool. As Wired GC posts here, 70 percent of London firms surveyed are restricting employee access to social-networking Web sites like Facebook. One exception is Allen & Overy, which initially followed the trend but lifted the ban after employee complaints. As for Wired GC, he wonders whether lawyers are really using Facebook to build professional networks -- and do they bill their time doing it?

What are the trends in the United States? Do any large firms here ban access to professional-networking sites -- and are associates using them for business ... or pleasure?
