As more people come of age on Facebook, the line separating personal and professional relationships is becoming more ambiguous. More than 20 percent of those surveyed said they are Facebook friends with their work supervisors, and nearly half of those employees were the ones to initiate the friend request. How about you?
Seventy-two percent of young people between the ages of 18 and 34 said they are comfortable being Facebook friends with their bosses. Workers between 35 and 54 tended to think connecting with their bosses on Facebook would be inappropriate.
No matter whether you are friends with your boss on Facebook or not, it’s important to remember that anything you say on FB about your work or job or boss can easily be copied, and can live forever on the web. So always be careful about posting anything that is not positive or complimentary about your job or co-workers!
