i been very picky when it comes to accepting friend request in facebook. i only add friends that i personally know. few weeks ago my boss send a friend request in facebook, but i havent accept him yet. im afraid that once we became friends in facebook, i wont be able to post my rant about my work or my opinions about my boss. and also if he become my friend in facebook, he may judge me by the post/photos/comments i made. what your opinion, should i accept or decline his friend request? have you also experience this kind of scenario?

I wouldn't accept a request when your coming to us for advice. Clearly, you really don't want to add your boss. Several people have posted that people they know have lost their jobs because of Facebook posting. I think people should be careful adding anybody to their friends at Facebook.

I inform people that I'm not adding anyone, as I'm not on the site often.

oh, it is really bad situation...I never expect that situation coming to me. Better don't accept his request but also dun decline immediately. just leave it there...I am sure your boss also doesn't ask you why don't you accept his friend request.

my plan really is to just ignore the request until he forget about his friend request. but he is asking why i havent tag him to our company outing photos. he is begging that i add him so he can view our company outing photos.

If you posted photos on Facebook that he can see, then its going to be hard to ignore him. I don't post photos on Facebook.

i think it depends on you.. if you are not comfortable when you accept your boss, don`t do it

I have nothing to hide, so I will accept a friend request from my boss. It would be so unprofessional if you keep on ranting about your work. I'm in no position to tell you this, but just a piece of advice. You shouldn't do that kind of stuff. People will have a bad impression about you.
