Facebook for Dummies

From today`s Toronto Sun ... you have been warned!
A Sydney call-centre operator demonstrated to the world this week why you should not befriend your boss on Facebook.
Kyle Doyle, 21, called in sick to work this week, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
Not long after, Human Resources representatives at his office contacted him to provide proof of his illness.
Doyle replied that company policy does not require a doctor's note for one day's absence.
True, the HR representative said, but Doyle's manager doubted the employee's story.
Then -- in an e-mail exchange that has been circulated around the world and posted on the Morning Herald's website -- the HR rep attached a screenshot of Doyle's Facebook page.
"Kyle Doyle is not going to work, f___ it I'm still trashed. SICKIE WOO!" the profile update read.
Doyle conceded he was busted -- but there's been no update as to what his work status is now.
Frankly, I think the company should look at disciplinary action against the young man's boss for logging on to Facebook during working hours.
