A survey by Liberty Mutual’s Responsibility Project was released todaythat measured the attitudes by Americans toward using Facebook at work.
The responses indicated that 56 percent say “it is irresponsible” to be friends with a boss.
On the other hand, 62 percent said it is wrong to be friends with an employee.
Among workplace peers, 76 percent claimed it is acceptable to be Facebook friends with a coworker.
And with a rising practice in the Human Resources departments, Americans are almost evenly split on whether companies should review a job candidate’s Facebook or MySpace personal profile. From those surveyed, 52 percent said it is appropriate for the HR people and 48 percent said it is unacceptable.
