To connect or not to connect? That is a question that would not have existed ten years ago. But with the increasing popularity of social networking platforms, employees now are likely to have to make a conscious decision about whether to include their bosses in their virtual social circle.
According to a survey conducted by Singapore’s leading online job portal, JobsCentral, many are still reluctant to take the plunge. While 81.1% of the respondents said they have at least one social networking profile, two in three (66.9%) said that their bosses are not among their list of friends on any of the social media they use.
A total of 2,281 respondents took this survey, and the respondents consisted of employed individuals from all levels of occupation and income groups. This survey has an error margin of 2.05%, at 95% confidence level.
