Would Organizations benefit from granting employees access to Social Networking Sites?

Would Organizations benefit from granting employees access to Social Networking Sites?
Many organizations and public bodies have shown concerns over allowing their staff members access to social networking sites. But are they right or wrong?

Many people believe that organizations that use social media gain certain benefits by using these internal systems to generate a sense of loyalty or a sense of community within the organization, but still others believe that embracing social networking in the organization can result in breach of practices, especially with privacy.

This leads us to the question that does allowing your staff to access social networking sites from work impair productivity or breach privacy?

Or does granting access to social networking sites provide for more useful communications and demonstrating to your staff that you, as the organization, trust them to use this technology in a healthy manner?
