A growing number of people are tweeting and using Facebook from the office, but that doesn't mean they think it's a good use of their time. Or company resources.

In fact, according to a new survey, a majority of American workers (51 percent) think using social media at work hurts productivity. The survey of nearly 23,000 workers, by staffing company Kelly Services, shows that even more of them -- 57 percent -- believe that social media can cause problems in the workplace when workers mix personal and professional connections.
