It polled over 1,000 full-time employees for its state of social media in the workplace survey.
It discovered that more colleagues are connected with each other on Facebook (91 percent) than on LinkedIn (41 percent), and only 10 percent of employees avoid connecting with their managers on social media.
Seven out of 10 reported that they choose to connect with colleagues with who they share a friendship outside of work.
Almost half (46 percent) of workers say that they worry about what co-worker connections think of their social media posts, and 55 percent admitted they have decided not to post something because of a colleague connection.
One survey respondent commented that an employee complained about a negative experience with a co-worker, only to have that exact co-worker read the post. Another employee posted "party" nightlife photos on social media, leading an annoyed co-worker to unfriend that employee.
Unfortunately, that has not stopped uncomfortable social media encounters between colleagues. According to the majority of responses, politics are the primary reason for awkward social media encounters.
When asked if employees have ever had an awkward social media encounter with a co-worker, employees connected:
"It was about political parties. Dispute on some political issue," or "Got into a heated argument about politics," and "Political beliefs. They were bashing Trump. I told them if you are an American, he is your President. End of story."
Does our constant social connection to our friends and colleagues really make us happier?
Many of us no longer trust Facebook. We're wary of sharing data -- in case it is used by third parties without our knowledge. So, what features will the social media platform of the future need to regain our confidence?
