Why not block Facebook in the Library? There is a big queue of people waiting to do work and I can see at least 10 people on Facebook not working.

It may be technically possible to block Facebook, but as Facebook is now widely used by university departments and lecturers as an aid to communication and networking as well as providing an important method of contact with their family and friends back home for overseas students, this will not be done.  

Nevertheless, students should be considerate to their fellow students and avoid using computers for non-work purposes when other students are waiting to use the computers for their academic work.
