** TYF-Is it real?

Caught (T)Twittering or (Y)Youtube or on (F)Facebook at work? It'll make you a better employee, according to an Australian study that shows surfing the Internet for fun during office hours increases productivity. The University of Melbourne study showed that people who use the Internet for personal reasons at work are about 9 percent more productive that those who do not.
Another study said that "workplace Internet leisure browsing", or WILB, helped to sharpened workers' concentration. People need to zone out for a bit to get back their concentration. According to the study of 300 workers, 70 percent of people who use the Internet at work engage in WILB. Among the most popular WILB activities are searching for information about products, reading online news sites, playing online games and watching videos on YouTube.
Thus, I don’t know that these ideas are really working or not, but according to me this is good idea to increase the productivity.
