Thomson bans Facebook

Writing on his Facebook page last night, a member of the TUI board of directors (you can probably guess who) said he was "miffed IT have blocked Facebook".

We can imagine hundreds of old desktop PCs being dusted down so eager Thomson employees can maintain their Facecrack habits when they get home.

Wonder what will happen to TUI's very own, unofficial Facebook Group, Britannia AKA Thomsonfly AKA TUIfly AKA TUI Travel?

In fact, the group description "For all those that work (or for the pilots, do sudoko) for the glorious 'World of TUI' in any of it's guises !!!" will have probably to be changed following recent events.

[One of our eagle-eyed sub-editors has already pointed to the apostrophe in the possessive - tut tut TUI]

There are now 166 members of the group left without something to do during lunch breaks.

Surely time for a staff walkout...

Anyone know of other travel companies that have banned Facebook?

Dont Worry Kevin, It will be an agenda item at the next board meeting....all the clever ones have probably already worked out how to get around the proxy block....
