How to decline Facebook friends without offence

A colleague I just met at work has invited me to be their friend on Facebook. I don't want to offend them, but nor do I want to share my candid photos and lousy Scrabble scores with someone I hardly know. "Can I be your friend?" might work as an ice-breaker among small children, but it's not a question you hear often between adults, at least not outside of Las Vegas.Friendship, it is generally understood, is a relationship that evolves through shared interests, common experiences and a primeval need to share your neighbour's power tools.
