I would not recommend anyone to do this either. If you need to watch HTML5 content so badly, use your internet-ready phone instead. For the record, while at work... People should not be using social networks. I aam glad many bosses block them. I feel that all should do this.

You are probably a Theory-X employee if you find productivity funny.

While productivity is important, you must also accept that your employees are adults.  content filtering is treating them like children.  If you want to watch for them to use facebook while on duty, so be it.  fire them.  But when on break or otherwise not on duty, there's no GOOD reason not to let them browse the web freely and safely.

If you're going to gripe security this and confidentiality that, note I said safely.  Adequate measures should be in place to prevent common facebook and other casual infections from occuring already.  if the company computers aren't adequately secured against threats, that's the company's liability, and the employees can't reasonably be held responsible for that.

I totally understand what you mean. Problem is some employees abusive with their time. I remember when I used to work for a medical insurance company down at Wall Street, there were some employees just chatting away on FaceBook instant messenger while on the phone with a client. Granted it is just a call center, but I feel that you should give a client your undivided attention. I think social networks in only acceptable in certain jobs. Ideally not call centers, hospitals, security, air traffic control, or anything else that requires the employee's fullest attention. Plus, it simply looks unprofessional on their behalf to have FaceBook on the screen instead of a spreadsheet/office documents. Maybe I am too old fashioned in that regard... Not sure.

Security is a priorty... But after seeing all these hackings against large businesses as well as other governments... It makes any small business owner wonder just how safe their network really is. Best you block social networks as some malicous files come in the format of a jpeg, which is what all social networks use. Major breach. I do not care if the employee is always on FaceBook, I just feel that safety is a priority for company networks. Let them download the trojans onto their smartphones. Theory-X employees do not care about productivity, or safety. Those are the ones who are likely to sabotage the network infrastructure and trade secrets. Sometimes you have to be a little strong, and treat them like children. Finding a Theory Y these days are very hard I'm sure.
