According to this article on Webopedia cyberloafing is:
A “Slang term used to describe employees who surf the net, write e-mail or other Internet-elated activities at work that are not related to their job. These activities are performed during periods of time when they are being paid by their employer…”
Cyberloafing (also known as cyberslacking) gets a bump this time of the year on the Monday following daylight savings time. Research studies point to a big drop in productivity due to changes in sleep patterns.
Personally, I never cyberloaf… I merely research… eh..OK… I have to say that I do a lot of “research” on Mondays probably more so than I any other day of the week. Do you do the same…eh… research on Mondays? Is this your biggest day for “research”?
My list of the top cyberloaf Mondays in order:
- Firs Monday after a long Summer vacation (The brain is not functioning)
- First Monday after New Years Day (Still recovering. Whats work again?)
- First Monday after Spring break (Still recovering. Need more brain cells)
- First Monday after Spring Day Light Savings Time (Lose an hour of sleep!)
- First Monday after Fall DST change (Gain an hour of sleep!)
- Tuesday after Labor Day (It is technically a Monday)
- Tuesday after Memorial Day (See above)
Am I missing anything? Are these your same loafing days? My brain is not functioning right now. Too much sleep!
