San Francisco – A new report shows that many people who log onto Facebook while on the job check out what their friends are doing as opposed to playing games and other activities. As reported by AFP, computer security firm Palo Alto Networks recently released a report suggesting voyeurism was prevalent among a majority of workers who use company computers to access the social networking site.

Palo Alto Networks is quoted by AFP as stating in the report, “The risks that voyeurism represent include a potential loss of productivity and the possibility of malware introduction by clicking on a link within someone's 'wall…The small amount of (Facebook posts) should not minimize the risks in terms of what users are saying about work-related subjects such as current projects, travel plans and company status.”
