Selective blocking of social networking sites?

Steven Matthews blogs about law firms as employers’ dilemma blocking social networking websites.  He lists out several IT solutions that might allow a firm to selectively block sites based on time restrictions, identifying specific abusers and the like.   But the most important point he makes at the end.

“One last point: A significant number of web tools start with a ‘fun’ or social purpose, before evolving for business use. And few remain in the form for which they were originally envisioned. Law firms would do well to leave themselves an open door to re-evaluate blocking decisions. The site you blocked two years ago may be an unforeseen opportunity in the future.”
