The cat is finally out of the hat. 81% people say no to Facebook friendship with boss and I am sure this ratio will be higher in India

Bosses are a feared word for most of the people in almost every part of the world and most people want to keep a distance with their bosses. Now a latest survey says that more than 80 percent people want not to befriend their bosses.

A latest YouTell survey has concluded that as many as 81 percent people want never to friend their bosses on the biggest social networking site Facebook. The social networking site Facebook with more than one billion registered users across the world is used by every sixth person in the world and so a significant percentage of the world population is attached to it and they want to be connected to people they know, and even those they don’t know.

But there is a group of people that no one really wants to friend on his or her Facebook page. And to be true this specie is very important for almost everyone working in either a small or big company. Yes you have guessed it right. Bosses are the people no one really wants to friend on Facebook.

YouTell survey that interviewed as many as 722 people found to its horror that 81 per cent said that they don’t want to be Facebook friends with your boss. While there seemed to be a consensus on not befriending the boss on Facebook, people were less sure when it came to being friends with colleagues on the site.

Though there is no particular mention of how Indian men and women think of being Facebook friend of their bosses, but I am sure even higher percentage of people wouldn’t like to be friend with his or her boss.
