Would You Give Up Your Facebook Password For a Job?

Facebook

When interviewing for a new job, you expect the usual questions about experience and references, but what would your reaction be if the interviewer asked for your Facebook username and password?

Would you refuse and withdraw your application? Or would you hand over your credentials? In today’s economy some people just cannot afford to say no.

“It’s akin to requiring someone’s house keys,” said Orin Kerr, a George Washington University law professor and former federal prosecutor who calls it “an egregious privacy violation.”

Questions have been raised about the legality of the practice, and there is proposed legislation in some parts of the country that would forbid public agencies from asking for access to social networks.

Regardless of your opinion, be prepared if you are in the job market.
