My Colleague found my Facebook

The other day, I saw my colleague’s name (the one who spread the news that I dance) on my Facebook friend request list. I was OMCGBBQSAUCE surprise as I never put my real photo as my main profile picture and not even my full name.

It is like a big taboo to add her, if I do, the whole office will found out that I blog @@ !!

(P/S: they don’t read newspaper, or at least theStar as no one found out about the newspaper article that I was on yet)

So instead of clicking “Ignore” on the request (which I think its bad) I just pretend I didn’t notice bout the friend request… XD

but but…

 

 

but that doesn’t stop her from bugging me every single time I see her in the office. T3T

Help~~~

Do you guys add your colleagues on Facebook?

    Personally I only add as friends people who are friends in the first place.

    Co-workers are co-workers. We talk a little, gossip a little. But unless I go out with them on outings, to have a drink, or chat more deeply about personal life issues, they will likely just remain as colleagues and not exactly a friend friend.

    Add your colleagues to a list and then restrict them off from many many things. πŸ˜€ Haha if that’s the last choice you have, that’s what facebook’s privacy is all about.

    No, I don’t add them in FB because how I behave at work and outside of work is different. I don’t want them to see my true colors. hehehe

    Reply:
    Different person when work and outside eh?

  • November 23, 2011 - 9:31 am | Permalink

    I do approve all their add. You set everything your view first before approving her and then listed her in a group that you don’t want them to see your album/personal information etc. Then, in every album or information you just click the custom button and write down the group list in the block column and click save! I always do that :3

    p.s. Ms Flower looks irritating & noisy to me lol.

    Will do that πŸ˜€

    I did add my colleagues and boss in FB, but I don’t worry because my colleagues knew me go out with my Deaf friends mostly. Hearing and Deaf are different. They don’t know Deaf culture, that’s why they curious and ask me how sign language.

    And they knew me help Deaf society on many times because I involved in Deaf community onli πŸ™‚

    same here but I do add my readers tho ^^”

  • November 23, 2011 - 2:24 pm | Permalink

    I dare not add because it’d involve treading in the water more carefully. Plus, unless it’s a super close friend, there’s no need to let the office know the after-office hour me. πŸ˜›
    Thankfully, my colleagues weren’t like yours… πŸ˜›

    Oh gosh. Now she’s haunting you. How come she knows so much about you? You sure she’s not stalking you? Who knows if she actually has feeling for you? πŸ˜›

    Anyway, just ignore her, speak up about your right. It’s your account anyway, you can do anything you want with it. Don’t let people bully you ok?

    As for me, I only add people that I am familiar with and will do me no harm on fb. There was this ex-colleague from my internship days that added me on fb but up until now the request is still kept safely in the friend request section πŸ˜› If I were you, I definitely will not accept her request. If she keeps bugging me at office I will just ignore her softly. (Smile and said you’re busy, change the topic everytime she brings up the facebook thing) This is my style. I am quite heartless when it comes to annoying people πŸ˜›

    I used to add them and now I deactivated my account because of the number of previously tagged pictures that I have to remove manually (I hope FB had option to mass untagged pictures).

    I agree with the others who suggest restricting your profile. I’m also planning to do that once I reactivate my account. Just don’t have time for now, busy working (and applying to another company, hehe)

    Anyway, good luck on your colleague! You know, opposite poles do attract each other… *evil grin*

    I also wanna mass untagged the photos!!

    Yes, I do add colleagues but close one. Just have to be aware not to do something very “obvious” in FB during working hours like upload tonnes of photos. Bottom line is: DO NOT ADD THE BOSS!! XD

    hahahaha easy, just kill her instead LOL

    Haha, the dilemma… I add colleagues, but only those I have actually socialised with. Up till now I am still “safe”, no annoying colleagues or boss has tried to add me! πŸ˜› But I think I would put them in a group, and restrict their view of my page…I already do that for some online “friends”. There are a lot of privacy settings on Facebook, but they’re not very easy to use :/

    Or else…you could just say, “I never open my Facebook, wait till I open it then I will add you…maybe next year?” >:D

    I did that exactly!!
