I have my boss as a facebook friend and I was wondering it that was strange / odd.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 12/17/09 - 7:52:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
I have 2 former bosses on my FB, yeah. Only because I liked them/was friends with them. Otherwise I would never.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 12/17/09 - 11:25:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
Only if they are around my age. If not, then nope.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 12/17/09 - 11:35:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
Completely depends. One of my bosses was like 2 years older than me and was one of my closest friends. So yeah, I added her on facebook. I wouldn't add a boss who was a legitimate adult though, rather than just a college aged person.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 12/17/09 - 1:53:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, never. Only if they were my former boss and I was on friendly terms with them, but even then it would depend on the person.

I write pretty openly on my facebook, I don't want my boss to see something inappropriate and think less of me.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 12/17/09 - 2:13:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes and I have, he's a good friend.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 12/17/09 - 4:50:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
That would be terrible.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 12/17/09 - 9:19:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
If they sent me the invite, I'd accept it. It'd be awkward otherwise. But if their picture shows up under "People You May Know", I'm not going to add them as a friend.

Yes, I know that there are privacy settings on Facebook (I've blocked my extended family from seeing my status updates, because I drop occasional f-bombs), but that still doesn't change what I wrote above.

I don't have a boss, but conversely, if I had a Facebook, I would add the folks who work for me.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 12/18/09 - 4:22:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
That's probably not a good idea. Especially if you put stuff in your stats updates like "Oh man, I was soooooo wasted last last night!!!1'

I don't have a Facebook account, and don't ever plan on having one. But if I did, I sure wouldn't add my boss. I like to keep my personal life seperate from my professional one.
10 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 1/26/10 - 4:11:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
my boss keeps trying to add me and i dont know if i should but i cant keep ignoring them its getting awkward
10 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 1/26/10 - 5:52:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
No way! They might see me complaining and I might get fired!
10 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 1/26/10 - 7:33:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
if i liked my boss, i would, otherwise, i don't even bother.
10 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Tuesday 1/26/10 - 8:41:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
I considered it. I work only in the summer, so it would be a good way of ensuring they could contact me again.

I'd block them from posts/pictures/etc though.

No way. I have too many risky photos up there...
9 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 8/19/10 - 6:52:25 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would, If he/ she sent me the friend request. I wouldn't send him a request myself.

Risky or "risqué"?

she tried to add me, but I didn't accept her I don't need her knowing how boring I am
7 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 6/14/12 - 11:25:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
Probably. Back when I had a Facebook, I never wrote anything bad.
7 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 6/14/12 - 2:09:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Got one of the previous owners on my facebook, now currently one of my bosses(sold the company)

But the guy is a biker, and it's nice to be able to ask the guy about anything i'm wondering about when working on my bike for when he leaves the country to go home each weekend.

back when i had a facebook, i did
but my boss was cool and i never used it
7 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 6/14/12 - 3:54:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
i pretty much add anyone but i wouldn't be the one to send the invite
5 yrs ago - Sunday 3/22/15 - 6:14:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have. If there's anything I don't want work people to see, I hide them from seeing it.
