Social Media Distracting Employees

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 09:24 PM EDT
There are plenty of distractions during the workday but employers may have something to worry about.

What starts as a quick check of Facebook usually becomes a costly distraction.

According to Red E App, workers are interupted about once every 10.5 minutes. It takes an average of 23 minutes to recover from the distraction and get back to work. That adds up to 28 percent of the day spent on interruptions and recovery time.

Those interruption will end up costing the American economy a staggering $650 million a year. Facebook is the worst culprit with one billion posts per day. The average user spends 405 minutes per month on Facebook.

Meanwhile, Twitter users send 400 million tweets per day, an average of 89 minutes per month.

While everyone can use a break, the same study found 45% of workers believe they are expected to work on too many things at once. Social Media Distracting Employees
