Talkin' FB w/ Alyson

It’s an almost Seinfeldian dilemma. Do you accept a friend request from your boss on Facebook? What if you choose “ignore”? Or, what if you put them on “limited profile”? Is that just as insulting as a straight ignore? Or would leaving the request unanswered be worse?

It makes your head spin. But it’s a little decision that many of us are confronted with everyday as more and more co-workers and professional contacts find one another on Facebook.

So what do you do? Well, it depends!
