It is easy to complain about our jobs. Spend enough time doing something and it just can’t be wonderful all the time or probably even most of the time. Hopefully it is good some of the time or at least enough that you don’t hate getting up every day. I may not have found my dream job yet, but there are definitely things I enjoy about where I work.
My direct answer to this months question of managing mixing work, friends, and family on Facebook is simple. I don’t mix them.
I lead a divided online life. I have my work life, SQL Server, Twitter friends, work friends, and work blogs that I follow. I also have a Facebook account that I use to follow and share things with my family and non-work friends. Sometimes they overlap a little, but for the most part I keep them separate. I am not Facebook friends with any one that I work with. I will sometimes share things about my work life on Facebook, but only if I think it will interest people (or I am trying to promote my blog.)
