The bad news for White House staff: No more Facebook.

CNN Political Ticker:
For employees inside the White House, wasting time on Facebook is not an option.

"You cannot get on Facebook at the White House," Council of Economic Advisers chairman Austan Goolsbee told CNN Money's Managing Editor Lex Haris during an interview.

"Government rules."

Ironically, Haris was interviewing Goolsbee during the weekly White House "Open for Questions" session that was streamed on the White House Facebook page where users could also summit questions live on the social network.
The good news: So many more places to go on the Internet that don't count as "wasting time." You're welcome.
