There are certain people it can be awkward to friend on Facebook. It’s not always the best idea to be friends with parents and coworkers, but there seems to be a consensus that there is one person you should never friend-request: Your boss. Do you agree or disagree with this?
According to a survey, 81 percent say you should not be Facebook friends with your boss. Slightly more men than women said it was OK to friend your boss, and those age 25 to 34 (college-age kids when Facebook first appeared on campuses) were the most comfortable with the it.
Here is my take on who you should be friends with on Facebook: I have a ‘personal’ Facebook page where I am ONLY friends with the people I talk to and see on a regular basis. My family, and close friends only. This is so I can really keep up with my true friends and what is going on in their lives. If you have 1000 friends on your Facebook page, you really cannot keep up with everyone, because even if they each only post one thing a week, that is a 1000 status updates, and who has time to scroll down and see them all? Not me!
I think if you do not hang out with your boss outside of work, then you should probably not be friends with them on Facebook either. But if you are Facebook friends with every person you have ever known your whole entire life, then why not add your boss too!
Are you comfortable with being friends with your boss on Facebook?
