More People "Friending" their Bosses on Facebook

With more and more people joining social media site like Facebook everyday, the lines between personal and professional relationships are becoming blurred.

The Washington Post reports, more people, are "friending" their bosses.

In the Russell Herder survey, more than 20 percent of about 1,000 online respondents said they are Facebook friends with their work supervisors, and nearly half of those employees were the ones to initiate the friend request.

Seventy-two percent of young people between the ages of 18 and 34 said they are comfortable being Facebook friends with their bosses, whereas mid-career workers between 35 and 54 tended to think connecting with their bosses on Facebook would be "inappropriate."
