Internet Protocol: Overzealous Friending and IMing With the Boss

Posted in General Business,Social Media Marketing by ebs4pos on September 26, 2009

Last week we introduced our new etiquette column, Internet Protocol, as a way to help readers gracefully maneuver through the tricky social situations of a hyperconnected world. This week, we dive into gratuitous Facebook friend requests and dealing with remote work situations.

As always, if you find yourself torn over whether to accept a friend request from your ex’s mom or accidentally send out your phone number to 5,000 loyal Twitter followers, I’ll try to help sort it all out. E-mail me or tweet them to me.

Thank you to all of our readers who submitted questions via e-mail and Twitter — we are sorting through them now and will begin incorporating them in future installments. Each week, I will draw on a variety of sources to help address these quandaries — talking with expert advisers, polling friends and digging into the vast archive of my own personal experiences in recovering from embarrassing moments at the hands of social media.
