I would never friend my boss, or anyone that is in a position to take a job away from me. And even then, you should be prudent with the things that you put on there.

The problem is that the average Joe who barely knows how to use Facebook, wouldn't instinctively know what many of us here are suggesting. Yeah, It might be simple for us, but not to them.
Facebook stops you at every page to suggest people you may know from work, they really don't make it that easy to change your privacy settings. They definitely don't tell you that everything you have ever written on Facebook in the past is now instantly visible to these newly suggested work buddies.
Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but I think that speaks volumes.edit on 3-10-2011 by dyllels because: spelling

Lets face it, some of us work for incompetent morons, why shouldn't we be allowed to have an opinion about it?

The difference being that we don't actually sign up to a contract with our citizenship, otherwise none of us would be on here would we?
If you bite the hand that feeds, inevitably you will get a smack.
Now, the Government do not feed me. I feed them with my taxes, but I earn my money and wouldn't be foolish enough to criticise my employer on Facebook. If I had a problem with their management abilities, I would question them directly, but I would do so constructively. To just call someone a moron on a social networking site doesn't give the person the opportunity to defend themselves and opens up a defamation of character case, simples.
