Facebook use lands Dallas workers in trouble
DALLAS, TX -- Constantly checking Facebook at work may get you in trouble.Two dozen Dallas City Hall workers received reprimands or counseling after a recent probe showed they spent too much time on the social networking site.
Officials are working on new employee guidelines for social media use. Dallas City Manager Mary Suhm says said employees aren't allowed to do personal business when they're being paid by taxpayers.
Cesar Baptista, an assistant director in the water department, had Facebook open for 68 hours during a three-month period. But Baptista said he often opened his Facebook page in the morning and didn't close it while he did other things. He says he no longer opens the site at work.
The Dallas Morning News reports that the inquiry started with a TV station's request.
