What would we do without the internet and email? How about texting, instant messaging, blogs, and social media? All of us have come to depend on electronic communication.

In addition to using the Web and e-mail for work-related purposes, employees are also using the internet to send personal e-mail messages, play games, download pornography, post on Facebook, go shopping, and gamble. Employers are grappling with how much personal use to permit in the workplace, as well as with the question of whether to monitor internet use and whether to block access to certain sites.
