The Dangers of Facebook

Facebook More evidence of why many of us warn our students about their Facebook accounts.  A British worker added her boss at some point as a Facebook friend, but apparently forgot that fact later as she complained about her job and boss (I'm being selective because of the language--check out the link for the unedited version):  "OMG I HATE MY JOB!!  My boss is a totally pervvy wanker always making me do [sh*t] stuff just to piss me off!"  As expected, her boss then commented:

i guess you forgot about adding me on here?  . . . [T]hat "[sh*t] stuff" is called your "job," you know what I pay you to do. . . .  [Y]ou also seem to have forgotten that you have got 2 weeks left on your 6 month trial period.  Don't bother coming in tomorrow. . . .  And yes, i'm serious.

This isn't going to help uncork the backlog of Facebook friend requests in my in-box.  And if my Dean is reading this, I don't think you're a pervvy wanker at all.
