Technology’s Impact On Workers

The Pew Research Internet Project has put out an interesting report on technology's impact on workers. The findings? Among other things, workers in the US say they need e-mail more than a landline and social media is worthless in the workplace.

The high value of email comes despite the challenges of the past generation, including threats like spam and phishing and competitors like social media and texting. Surprisingly, landline phones outrank cell phones for these internet-using workers. Social media is very low in importance.
