Unformatted text preview: Com 339: Online Learning Community Blog HIGHER SALARY OR ACCESS TO FACEBOOK? The article describes a study recently performed on 2,800 college students and recent graduates ages 21-29 to see what they expect from employers when it comes to social media. The article claims that more than half of the students interviewed would turn down a job offer, or find a way around the policy, if the company banned social media. The article also goes onto explain how the students view the impact of social media on their professional lives, including the job they are applying for. I found the article to relate to the idea of an "interpretive view" in chapter 4 on page 116. I think the article also carries over to the "What Would You Do?" scenario on page 117. The scenario talks about improving motivation, by a manager simply showing interest or supporting them, the manager is essentially "shooting" serotonin to the brain. I think that the article from the UK Daily Mail shows that by allowing current and new hires to use social media to connect with friends, colleges, and customers gives the employees that encouragement that provides the serotonin to make the employee feel good. While many companies find social media to be a waste of time, or only meant for their marketing department, it would behoove them to consider the new generation that has grown up with a computer in their lap and a screen that is always available. My questions for you are: Would you be in that over 50% that would turn down or find away around the policy if the company banned social media? Do you think companies should take a second look at in-house social media? Does the importance our generation places on social media affect the work environment and the relationships we create? And lastly, Is access to social media more important than the size of your salary? Why?
