I’d like to add some work friends on fb, but I feel so awkward about it. First off, a lot of these people aren’t “friends” in the sense that we hang out, but we talk, are friendly, I like them, etc.
I just feel that if I send a request, they’d ignore it, and then it would be awkward whenever I see them.
Do any of you friend your colleagues?

I do sometimes, if I talk to them outside of work or they are already friends with other coworkers on fb.

I’m friends with a lot of my co-workers on FB, even my company’s CEO! I’ve gotten requests from some of them, but others were requested by me.

Nope, I like to keep work people at arms length and don’t want them too involved in my personal like. Not that I put much on FB anyways because I can’t figure out the “grouping” people thing. I do have one from my old job, but we never worked together at the same time and I am super close with her parents seperate from my friendship with her.

I’ve got quite a few work friends on FB.
It’s been both parties doing the requesting. Sometimes me, sometimes them. Or I have brought it up before in conversation when something is sadi about it, like: “oh, are you on FB? You should find me!”

I’m friends with a few co-workers, and a few ex-cowokers. I work with a small group of people 2-4 others depending (high turn-over rate). So we all know each other pretty well even if we don’t hang out after work. If a co-worker requested me on facebook, I would accept and not think anything of it.

No….Never, I actually hide the fact I have a facebook account from anyone that I might ever do business with in the near or far future. I have an extremely offensive sense of humor and me and SO use FB to troll his family on a regular basis. Since I work for a college at the moment, I am fairly certen that my colorful humor would get me fired…..In fact I have actually consider creating a business account just for networking that wouldn’t be invovled with my cheeky shenanigans.

When I was working part time jobs and internships I would request co-workers, so at least I would accept their requests. I requested less then half my friends list though, most people asked me and I accepted. I’ve never been big on sending them out idk why. Now that I am at a full time job I wouldn’t facebook anyone here. Most people don’t have one anyway, I am the youngest by a few years at 24. I am linked to co-workers on LinkedIn though.

I hate having people from work on my facebook. I have one of my bosses on FB but that’s because he sent me a friend request one day and then stood at my desk waiting until I accepted his friend request. It was awkward.

nope, definitely not. at the end of the day, they will always be just colleagues and I limit how much I tell them about my personal life. I actually have them blocked, so they don’t even see that I have profile….some of them can be quite fiesty, so I wouldn’t want them to have access to info on my personal life.

I only have a couple from work, that are my friends outside of work. I have someone that has friend requested me in August and i’m ingnoring it. She works in another building so I don’t see her much. She lives near me and I don’t want her to figure out where I live based on the pictures on my page.
I just read the above and I sound a little paranoid lol. I just have visions of her dropping by all the time. She is known to do this. haha

I do not friend request people from work. I have had some people at work friend request me and I feel awkward denying them- so I keep them in facebook purgatory and pretend I haven’t seen it. If I become close friends with someone outside of work- then I feel ok having them as a facebook friend. But if I see you once a month and we talk for 10 minutes- that doesn’t mean I want you to know about my personal life outside of work. Sorry if that sounds harsh.

I have a completely separate FB and no personal friends are on that one, and no work ones are on my “real” one. I have to keep some visibility to my co=workers and that’s really those only way that would “work” and it has for almost 3 years now. I almost never go on the work one.

I have a very strict no friending colleagues policy!! That way if I feel like writing about how my coworkers are all sick today but came in to work anyway just so they could infect me before the holidays – I can! Haha. I am actually very good friends with some of my coworkers, we text outside of work and stuff, but I STILL refuse to add them on Facebook.
