Coworkers on facebook

Do you have your coworkers as Facebook friends?

Re: Coworkers on facebook

I only have two of my co-workers on FB. One really isn't a co-worker and we work for the same district but different departments. We are friends outside of work and our kids are friends

The other one is my co-manager. We are friends outside of work.

But I am very simple in FB--mainly just family, some friends that live out of state. I have less than 75 friends (90% of those are DH's family LOL!!!) I dont find it necessary to have every single person I have ever met as a FB friend.

I try to keep work and out of work stuff separate as much as possible.

Yes. I'm a teacher and have been at my building for 10 years. I am really close with a lot of my co-workers.

I was a little weirded out when one of my admin added me on Goggle+ though.

Mostly no. I'm a manager and I feel its inappropriate for most of my staff. I've added other managers and people I know who can keep professional and friendships separate. I did unfriend one coworker because she was bad mouthing the company and me one day. Later when she realized I had unfriended her she asked why. I told her she can either be friends with the boss on fb or gripe about work on fb but not both lol

I'm.fairly open about.my lifestyle at work so I don't have concerns about privacy

Some- the ones I consider friends. I'm very selective about what I post though and avoid mentioning my employer by name.

Some, but I never talk about work other than in the most general of terms (e.g. "Home sick from work today"). I don't even do TGIF posts. I also never have a person who is superior to me on FB

Re: Coworkers on facebook

Only two of them but I wouldn't friend my boss. I like to keep my personal and work life separate for the most part but I've known these two coworkers for awhile. I share a lot of mutual friends with one of them.
