Would you quit your job if (horrors) your company said you couldn't play on Facebook during the workday? Believe it or not, more than a third of 18-to-24-year-olds would consider jumping ship, while 21 percent more said they'd be "annoyed" by a ban.

It's even worse in Australia, where almost half of those using MySpace and Facebook during work hours say they'd refuse a job that didn't offer them access to the social-networking sites.
