Should bosses and employees be friends on Facebook?

Should bosses and employees be friends on Facebook?

With rules about personal and professional behaviour blurring, it’s a bit surprising that only 21 percent of respondents in a recent Russell Herder survey said they are Facebook friends with their work supervisors, compared to 74 percent who aren’t.

Less surprising, however, is that younger workers aged 18-34 are more likely (26 percent) to be Facebook friends with the boss, compared to just 10 percent of those 35 or older. And while 44 percent of Facebook users age 55 and up think it’s inappropriate to friend the boss, only 28 percent of those 18-34 agree.
