I'm sure of the methodology behind these findings, but a recent article suggests the following concerning employer monitoring of employee Internet and Web 2.0 activities:

The odds an employer monitors employee blogs are 1 in 7.14

1 in 3.13 employers monitor employee email at work

1 in 6.25 employers, or 16 per cent monitor employees’ social networking profiles

The odds an employer monitors employee instant messaging at work are 1 in 6.25.
