I guess I don’t see what the big deal is. If you live some sort of perverse lifestyle, you probably shouldn’t have a Facebook page anyway. What’s the harm in sharing a little of your personal life with your coworkers? It helps everyone to get to know each other better. After all, most of us spend more time with workmates than our own families.

“How to decline Facebook friends without offence”

Who wrote this title? That is the British spelling for the word offense. Social rules definitely do not transcend cultures and it would be a cold day in Hades when I would take the advice of someone from another country concerning how to run my social life, ridiculous!
