Facebook Dilemma - Should you confirm or ignore your boss's friend request? Print E-mail

So your boss wishes to connect with you on Facebook but you are not too comfortable with granting him/her access to your personal life and information on the social networking site. You probably do not want to ignore him/her either since it could get awkward.

Here’s how you can handle the delicate situation with finesse:

To Turn Down The Request
Be honest. Explain to your boss that you are using Facebook to keep in touch with family and close friends. There might be private information you post from time to time that you may not be comfortable to share outside your close friends and family circle.

Seek his/her understanding on this. If possible, offer an alternative and suggest that he/she connects with you on LinkedIn instead, which is more for professional networking.

Accept the Request
If you really can’t bring yourself to say no, accept the request and change the privacy settings to limit what your boss can get access to -  wall postings, photographs, comments, etc.
