With the economy the way it is today, people need to be more productive. Back in the day, you used to be able to slack off and no one said anything. I used to work with a guy that would go off and get ice cream during the day (off site). People felt that they had job security. Now it is different. Businesses are cracking down on employee productivity. They are slimming their workforce. Doing more with less people. So if you are caught playing games (like farmville) at the office and there are other issues with your productivity, you might find yourself out of a job. And believe me you do not want go out there looking for a job now. It is scary! I am sure everyone knows someone looking for a job right now.
