I once had the pleasure of being held to the standards attached.

Tough pill to swallow to hear from an employer who I can or cannot "friend" or what opinions I may or may not express. It definitely eroded any prior separation that existed between professional and personal life and merged it into one, at least as far as social media was concerned. Many employees were outraged over the policy and were thinking of seeking the counsel of the ACLU though I'm not sure they did.

I don't see anything wrong with that policy. It's just a CYA.

After one time too many of being friends with the help and getting the shaft I no longer do that.
Including being FB friends.


As an employer you can be friendly with your help but not friends of your help.
If that makes sense.

Help that considers you a friend are far more likely to be screwing off and taking advantage in all sorts of ways.
Not to mention that they think they run the company along with getting seriously butt hurt if remedial actions do need to be taken.
In one example I had to regularly remind a guy whose name was on the side of the truck.
And that it sure as heck did not have his any where near the company paperwork.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

I remember we had a guy that I had to continuously remind who signed the check...then one day I quit signing his and he figured it out....
