Facebook privacy goes out the window and kills a small child

It’s a interesting phenomenon to have people you work with as ‘friends’ on Facebook. This isn’t necessarily because you like them but if they added you and you didn’t add them, it would make lift journeys as awkward as if you’d involuntarily pissed yourself.

Stranger still is the trend of bosses and managers adding lowly worker ants as ‘friends.’ It’s a very real possibility to be friends with your boss but it does lead to some strange situations: a night crawling on a bar floor, omeone is sadistic enough to take a compromising pic, the enclave sees it in the stark morning light. Blackmail is a legitimate pastime.

So what does this all mean? Well, it seems to imply that bosses shouldn’t really do the social networking thing or at least not put worker drones in the position where they might have to deny the online friendship, I mean that would be professional suicide, wouldn’t it?
