do you think it should be allowed for upper management, managers, supervisors and employees to be friends on facebook?!?!

Posted by   + Show Post

 a few weeks ago i made a post in regards to which is more draining, your job or your co-workers?

it had been mentioned in a post to go to managment in regards to fellow co-workers trashing others that they were "friends" with outside of work  at work.

boy did that backfire in my face! after doing a little research i found out that not only is upper management but everyone from managers clear down the line to employees on my level are all friends on facebook!

i have worked for companies that won't hire family members, ones that if they do, don't allow them to work in the same dept. and companies that have transfered out employees if two employees of different ranks are dating or married.

so my question is do you agree that there should be a strict policy in which employees of different ranks should not be allowed to be friends on facebook just as well?!?!

i feel that it is a huge violation especially in regards to repremanding issues!

No there should not have to be a policy at work on who you can be friends with on Facebook.

So if you get promoted you have to dump your friends?  If you have facebook and you have people from work on it you just need to be careful what you say.

 Hahaha I always have had mine on fb.

I even bitched about my manager being a bitch at work that day, and was friends with her on fb. lol  And she commented on my post. Had a good laugh about it and we moved on with our lives. lol But then again I used to call her a bitch to her face too. Ah well.

But, ppl will have who they want to have, no biggie, if ya dont want shot to get out, simple dont post it.

When I became supervisor at my work, I deleted all my coworkers off my contacts on Facebook & set my profile to private. I never post anything work related, because that is just asking for trouble. I don't think most people can separate the two when it comes to reprimanding employees.

I think you did the right thing.  These days, many companies have policies against managers fraternizing with their associates anyway.

Why would you have your boss and boss's boss friends on your facebook account?  You need to do some unfriending and privacy upgrading.

I had to fire my best friend... It sucked!! We are still friends, and I helped her get another job. It's so hard to not feel bad when you are friends with someone & have to reprimand them.
