It’s Wrong to Friend Your Boss on Facebook [SURVEY]

According to a survey conducted by Liberty Mutual’s Responsibility Project, 56% of Americans think it’s “irresponsible” to friend your boss on Facebook, while 62% of bosses agree it’s wrong to friend an employee.

Reuters reports on other interesting results from the survey, including that 73% think it’s not OK to check Facebook at work, but 66% say checking personal e-mail is fine. Tweeting while at work is considered irresponsible for 72% of respondents, and watching online videos is wrong for 79%.

Other findings from the study include a fairly even split on whether companies are ethically in the clear when using social media profiles to assess job candidates: 52% think it’s appropriate with 48% dissenting. In the relationships department, a full 60% think it’s perfectly fine to unfriend an ex after a breakup. And despite the complexity of most of the social responsibility responses, one particular practice draws the ire of a majority 75% of respondents, who feel that it’s “egotistical and a waste of time” to build a Facebook profile for a pet.

The biggest caveat with these study results is the sample size: the project only polled 1,000 people. Nevertheless, it uncovers some interesting issues at the intersection of social media and the workplace that will likely become more, not less, thorny in the future.

What do you think: Is it OK to friend your boss or your employees on Facebook? In what contexts does it become more or less appropriate to do so?
