New Delhi, Nov 23: Most financial firms on the Wall Street have banned Facebook, Twitter and Gmail, and even blocked most music and video streaming sites.




Working on Wall Street is "a full life commitment, and without access to social media or personal email it can often feel like nothing exists outside of work," said one JPMorgan Chase analyst.
