Should You Accept Your Boss's Friend Request?


It's a modern-day dilemma.

So your boss finally did it. He friended you on Facebook. Before you break out in a cold sweat, Steven Petrow at The Advocate brings up some interesting points in a new advice column, giving tips and noting various stereotypical horror stories related to things that are posted on FB and then subsequently used against someone, leading to that said person getting either A) fired or B) in a general sort of trouble.

In this modern age of Facebooking, Twittering, Tumblring, and having our iPhones locked firmly to our hands day-in and day-out, it's a question that's crossed everyone's minds, no doubt. Should you mix work and social media when the social media in question is a largely uncensored portrayal of one's day-to-day life?

All we know is...hasn't anyone heard of privacy settings? Go ahead; accept your boss's friend request! Just block him from the thirty-seven albums of weekend-related debauchery first.
