|Friending your boss on Facebook exposes you to all sorts of job risks, but there are smart ways to do it.|
As soon as you're connected officially to your manager on Facebook, take a minute to adjust the settings for what you share with him or her. You can do this by going to your boss's profile page, clicking on the box at the top that says "Friends" and clicking on "Settings." This will give you the option to check off what types of content you want to share with that user. So, for example, you might want to share "life event" updates (such as signing up for new courses or changing neighborhoods), but you might prefer not to share photos just in case one of them is a little too personal.
