SOCIAL MEDIA USE IN WORKPLACE

Abstract
In the past, one of the biggest workplace challenges has been the arrival of social networking
sites, as is seen in this article. This article focuses on the issue of social media use in the
workplace and how it is disadvantageous to the working environment. The report starts with an
introduction, which brings forth the purpose of the article in providing the demerits of social
media use in the workplace. While social media use in the workplace is believed to be beneficial,
it gets noted that it is more disadvantageous since it may result in time wastage, malware
susceptibility making of mistakes, decreased productivity, and reduced employee relations. The
article concludes by explaining the methodologies used, which are both quantitative and
qualitative, and from secondary data sources. Also, a justification of the method gets provided,
and the references used for the work listed.

CPT relationship
This article provides a natural connection between the paragraphs from the introduction to the
literature review to the methodology used. The introductory part gives the primary purpose of the
article, stating that it aims at highlighting the problem of social media use in the workplace.
Some demerits get provided in the introductory part of the text, which paves the way for the
second part, which is the literature review. The literature review section obtains all the
disadvantages of social media use and explains each obstacle. The literature review section
employs the use of references that are recent and relevant. The recommendations used to pave
the way for the third section that gives an account of the methods used in the literature, which are
secondary methods. Also, the third section justifies the use of the methodologies employed in the
other sections
SOCIAL MEDIA USE IN WORKPLACE

Introduction
The arrival of social networking sites has posed one of the biggest workplace challenges
(Kuss & Griffiths, 2017). Kuss and Griffiths, (2017) further explain that social networking sites,
dubbed social media, have risen in terms of prevalence and importance, and have managed to
change the nature of work, and how it balances with people’s private lives. Social networking
sites are defined as online platforms that people use to build social relationships with other
people that share their interests or backgrounds through the creation of public profiles (Kuss &
Griffiths, 2017). Maier, Laumer, Eckhardt, and Weitzel (2015) assert that there are two
significant ways of gaining access to one’s social media profile, which is through social media
applications and social media websites. Social media applications are web-based software that
can be downloaded on computerized devices that support information sharing and publishing,
building personal profiles, and connecting with communities (Kuss & Griffiths, 2017). Social
media websites, on the other hand, are websites that allow real-time and high-speed content
sharing between people (Maier et al., 2015).
Background
As stated above, one of the biggest workplace challenges has been the arrival of social
networking sites (Kuss & Griffiths, 2017). According to Hughes (2019), surveys show that
employee spends around one and a half hours on social media every day, which translates to
seven and a half hours a week and three hundred and ninety hours a year. Hughes (2019) asserts
that the three hundred and ninety hours are “wasted” and that they are besides other distractions
caused by fellow employees, breaks, and the calls that employees receive. Different researches,
like the one done by Bizzi (2018), explain that around eighty percent of employees believe that
SOCIAL MEDIA USE IN WORKPLACE

social media improves productivity, while sixty percent believe that social media supports
“decision-making processes.” Bizzi (2018), however, notes that the use of social media in the
workplace increases employee turnover more than the reduction of employee productivity. Other
disadvantages that result from the use of social media include that there will be reduced
employee relations, destroyed company image, an increased risk of malware, and personal issues
tend to become workplace issues (Kuss & Griffiths, 2017). On the other hand, some advantages
that may come as a result of social media use include enhancing internal communication,
personal development, and increasing employee morale, etcetera (Hughes, 2019).
Problem statement
This research is meant to address the use of social media applications, and websites use in the
workplace. Today, as Kuss and Griffiths (2017) explain, social media use is very much a
prevalent issue in the workplace that leaves employers worried, and should the issue get ignored,
then employers are likely to have a workforce that is less productive and does not relate with
each other. Furthermore, a company’s image is possible to get destroyed with the promotions of
social media use. In this research, therefore, secondary research methods are used to research this
problem to assist employers, and other concerned parties gain an understanding of the issue.
Justification of the study
Social media use in the workplace is on the rise for the past decade, which has made it
become one of the biggest workplace challenges today (Song, Wang, Chen, Benitez, & Hu,
2019). Several people and most employees tend to believe that social media use in the workplace
is beneficial (Song et al., 2019). Most believe that it improves employee engagement and internal
communication (Song et al., 2019). Social media use, however, has numerous demerits that
employees need to understand, which is the importance of this research. For instance, some of
SOCIAL MEDIA USE IN WORKPLACE
7
the disadvantages of social media use in the workplace include decreased productivity, and a
tarnished company image (Maier et al., 2015). This article, therefore, aims at making people
aware of the demerits of social media use in the workplace to avoid the damage that it is causing
in the workplace today.
Thesis statement
Because improved productivity, an improved company image, and enhanced working
relations may depend upon the eradication of the use of social networks in the workplace, it is
vital that the issue of social media use in t…
