*Apologies for cross posting*
Many people use social networking tools, such as Facebook, Twitter, and  LinkedIn, for many reasons. At the workplace, it is still unclear whether these tools are distractions or they help boost productivity.  We, researchers from the University of Maryland, invite you to take a  worldwide survey to understand the relationship between social networking tools and job performance.*

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Your response will be confidential. You will NOT be identified under any circumstance and only aggregated results will be reported.  If you complete the survey and provide your e-mail at the end, you will receive a summary of the results and have a chance to win one of FOUR $25 Amazon
gift cards.


Finally, if you could forward this invitation to your colleagues and friends who may be using social networking at work, we'd appreciate your gracious help. Thank you!
