Ap = Networking fail!

This is so weird. It's almost like print media lives in a totally different world.

I am talking about the AP guidelines for Facebook given to their employees. And somehow, they have come up with the strangest rules.

Everyone is going on about the fact that you have to delete stuff others post (guessing it is from your profile page only) but other points strike me as even more odd.

"Also, managers should not issue friend requests to subordinates, since that could be awkward for employees. It's fine if employees want to initiate the friend process with their bosses."


And btw, I would not click a link that says "It's a good idea to reference the AP in the promo language, i.e. Just how much geek can be chic? Test your fashion IQ with this interactive game. "
