i dont put any of my workmates on Facebook. In fact, ive really clamped down on who is on it as there are lots of family stuff on there. Its the way we (a family who are all over the world) exchange photo's etc...

CRACKING...I say.

But like they say... 'you can never misquote silence'.
Hence I am not on the system.

You have to be a little special to make that sort of schoolboy error surely?
Why would you add your boss anyway?

Another example of pure stupidity....

Haha, pure classic.

Commander - history lesson; Facebook was set-up for the University Students to exchange their photos. So I guess you're using it for exactly the right purposes.

I too have cut down on who I have on there. Some people I don't even know and can't remember why I would ever have accepted their friend request!! (Or maybe I requested them?! Not sure!).

each to their own,

Plus some people are just nosey twats and want to gawp at your photo's instead of getting a life.

I went to school with these 3 cracking lasses, they all asked to be my friend last month, I accepted, checked their pics - they are now all pigs, then removed them.

That's what its about really.

If your going to be daft enough to invite co-workers/bosses, then set up the group privacy so they can't actually see anything.

I only ever added work colleagues when they became ex-colleagues
