Can you think of a BYOD item that you would be less likely to support than a Facebook phone?
RomanZ 1 year ago
The first thing I though of when reading about Facebook possibly producing its own smart phone was "why." The second thing I though was, "Good luck getting IT to support that!" Other than a thumb drive with STUXNET stenciled on the side, I can't think of many devices that I would be less inclined to support. Phones are bad enough (although not THAT bad since we only support Android and iOS), and Facebook is already verboten at my office, so a combination of the two is groan inducing. I don't know much about the device itself, so maybe I'm just being negative. Would you support employees' Facebook phones?
