Do you socialize with people from work? Do you have them on your FB? I have always heard not to mix your business life with pleasure but I am constantly getting friend requests from people at work. I just don't know if it is good idea.

I go out to lunch or dinner on occasion with people from work but that is as far as it gets. I do not have any as friends on FB. All too often I listen to the drama going on at work over something someone said/did on FB and I am so glad I am not a part of it. I personally would recommend you not friend anyone at work.

I don't socialize with my coworkers but mainly cause I don't really have much in common with them.  Most of them are immigrants from one particular country and most of them are younger than me & have young children.  However, my DD, who is a young single nurse, has made very good friends with other young single nurses she works with.  I think a lot of young people socialize with friends from work.  As far as FB goes, I think it depends on what you put on your FB and how close these friends are--I surely wouldn't put my boss on there, but the things that I put up on FB, being older, aren't even close to being scandalous, so I don't think it would matter much--or be very interesting to anyone at work.
