Personally where I work, I do not have access to a Computer and the internet and cannot access myLot really with my phone. So no the only time I am accessing myLot is from my home in my Free time. It would be frowned upon unless it is my Free time at work, but I know a lot of people there who access their Facebook accounts so what would be the difference for sure?

I am retired and don't work outside the home, so I can be here whever I see fit, whether it be all day, or just part of it I do enjoy being here so much, and I have learned a lot as well, and that is what mylot is about. I haven't been posting as much as I used to though, but I am still earning, however slow it might be, but that is okay, as I am not here for the money here anyway, as I just love to share my opinions with others and see what they have to say on the topic. I hope to continue to do that for as long as I can. good luck to you, and happy mylotting.

I do not myLot during my offline hours. It's a bit impossile since I do't have office hours. I work part time and am a full time student. There is no omputer at my job, but I am myLoting in class right now. I think pretty much everyone is surfing the Internet instead of paying attention to the presentation. I am paying somewhat attention because no one else is answering his questions but me.

Hi, to be honest I do. This is because I work from home and I honestly do this during my free time. It actually depends on you. If you can juggle working while mylotting why not? As long as you know your priorities and not putting your work off for anything, that's okay :)

I can see that your company has blocked certain sites to be browsed...I think it is a good step provided that more and more cases of Facebooking at workplaces happens nowadays...That step will surely makes the productivity in the top level...

Yeah facebooking at workplace :). It happened on my old company. And we do chat too :) Of course we didn't do that while boss around or a lot of works to be finished. Office job is still number one priority.

I am not even an office-working guy, but I believe that it is a dishonest thing to do ...That is because the company pays you for doing work that you suppose to do, and not MyLotting ...The Internet connection provided is only for work-related purposes and I believe not for personal ones...Moreover, an office job is the main income for most of us, so put things according to the priority and do MyLot in your free time...

right on livecenter I believe thats called work ethics. I wo rked part time in a library and we were allowed to use the computers only for private use just at lunch time or break and not to go past time to return to work. some were fired as they did not heed this. which to me was perfectly fair. as a page my job was to s helve media not play games or mylot. that I did at home on my own computer.

Mylotting during office hours should be okay but you should be careful not to mix mylotting with your office works. Doing this might make you less concentrated in youroffice works and could lead to bad results. So it will be advisable to strike a balance between mylotting and doing work at your office. Also keep in mind that mylotting isn't your way of living rather your job is! So never compromise anything with your job. Give it the first preference. You could be with your mylot buddies after you get back from your office hours :)

Of course, finish your job first. Your office work remains the number one top list. Because we paid for it. Refreshing interrupted activity can greatly help clear your mind. But don't take it too long during office hours :)

I work from home but did work in an office last year. I never myLotted form an office and I am sure if the company new about they would not be pleased. I am sure warnings would go out and people could potentially loose their jobs over it as they would feel one is not being constructive and productive at work. There are some members who do and are able to, as perhaps their boss and or work is not being disrupted I see you are fairly new to myLot so a warm welcome to you.

Many company have strict policy about work. And yes, I'm still newbie here, and not too active member. I read a lot more discussions than give a response or comment. Thanks for the response :)

I don't do myLotting during office hours. Firstly, our company does not allow non-work-related activities/websites. It eats up the internet resources all our computers share and it disrupts the productivity of the workers. At my brother's workplace, the company provided 3 computers for recreation that anyone can use during their break. I guess they can myLot there.

luckily my old company was not too strict. sometime when the work is not too much or after lunch during break time, we can play game on FB. Even just for half an hour :) Now I already resigned from there.

Hi there piperu!!! Well I don't actually mylot during office hours coz I really have many things to do and we seldom have a free time to browse on the sites where we want to go.In our office it is also prohibited to go to sites that are not really involve with the company coz it will be tracked by the company's server. I only do mylot at home coz here I can freely do whatever I like and no one will see me.Besides whenever I am in our house I can think more than when I am at the office.In our office it is very stressful and I can't seem to think properly coz of many tasks that are given by our boss.

Its against the rules of my company but I;m doing it because its damn boring in this office and it drives me insane if I dont have something else to do. I can still do my Job well despite of the fact I was mylotting. I love multi tasking and doing a single task drives me nuts. Mylot is a good place to kill boredom. Just stop thinking about the money and this place is just darn fun. people should stop wasting time at facebook.
