Ont. government employees blocked from Facebook

Government employees in Ontario can no longer access Facebook, the popular social networking website, on their computers.
To the chagrin of some of the thousands of workers — including Liberal aides, backbenchers and cabinet ministers — the 21-million member site is now blocked by the provincial ban.
As of Tuesday, when workers tried to access the site, they were greeted with the same “access denied” message that pops up if someone tries to access a pornography site, according to the Toronto Star.
Facebook is the latest website to be banned by the province, joining YouTube, online poker gambling websites and hardcore sex sites, Government Services Minister Gerry Phillips told the Star.
