Quick question about adding coworkers on Facebook.
Some background: I am new the workforce, I just finished up a year-long internship with a very large multinational company and have been with my current company for about 3 months. This company is a small, family-owned and -operated firm. Everyone who works there, besides me and another new hire (we’ll call her A), are either relatives or very close family friends. About a week after A started, she proceeded to friend everyone in the office on Facebook.
