The perils of friending one’s supervisor and forgetting about it are well known. Of course, it doesn’t always have to be like that. Friending coworkers can be an easy way to keep tabs on people and share information. I’m friends with my boss, my pastor and multiple family members and I’ve never regretted it. You just need to remember that when you’re talking online, anyone could be listening. For most wisdom and cautionary tales, check out SmartBrief on Social Media.
