Oh WOW! Some companies already require it****
 Quoting: Msmithspeanut1


I don't have a Facebook account, I shun social media like the plague. So, how can they tell you have an account?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1321115


Well they will be suspicious of you if you don't ,after all everyone has one so if you don't maybe you got something to hide? So maybe you will be fired and not hired to begin with and ostracized. Facebook may become something bigger than we imagined in the Brave New World dystopic future.
 Quoting: Manu-Koelbren


Something to hide? No. Maybe we just don't give a crap about social networking. I'd rather read threads on GLP than post a bunch of stupid stuff about myself on facebook. I like my privacy.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 37466251


I agree with you. I use this site much more than Facebook, which I call Fakebook.

I don't like social media, thus I don't have one. I DO have a linked-in though, but I barely use it. Not because I'm trying to hide anything, but because I literally can't get into the mindset of updating social media (linked-in) all the time.

Social media to me, is the exact opposite of being...SOCIAL. Technology like FB has trained our generation that if you want to talk to someone in THE SAME ROOM, just say it over txt or facebook, and that is disgusting. I still believe in talking face-to-face, sort of an HONOR thing as well as a body-language thing.

People also forget that FB is a COMPANY. And every company has its price. If FB is not using profiles for evil, I'm sure the company that eventually buys their servers will.

And I bet FB and Trapwire are linked pretty well.

But besides that, it's just stupid. Stupid and lazy. And I'm a pretty lazy person.

This is so ridiculous. How is this even enforceable?

Why not ask for our online banking user info as well? Check out what you spend your money on every month. See how financially secure you are.

Or your personal email account info, which is really not that much different than your facebook account, especially considering once you are logged into the account you can view all the private messages that you have sent/received.

Is this going to be required for job applications? Put in your name address social security facebook password. I mean get the hell out of here this is insane.

If this happens we are doomed, and any other personal privacy from at least entities other than the government is gone. Slippery slope if I've ever heard of one.

I once worked somewhere where they decided to conduct an efficiency study and we had to wear buzzers for a few days. Everytime they buzzed we were supposed to write down where we were, including the bathroom.

I never heard any results connected to me. I think my supervisor wasn't with the program and didn't follow through with any of the data crunching that came from it.

I remember though having to carry paper around and record what I was doing every time the damn thing buzzed.

-A last minute alteration to CISPA was defeated in a Congress vote
-It would have protected user's social media passwords from employers
-The late amendment was put forward by Democrat Ed Perlmutter



An attempt to ban US bosses from asking employees to hand over their Facebook login details has been blocked by Congress.

A last minute alteration to the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) that would have prevented employers demanding that prospective employees disclose social media passwords as a condition of employment was voted down in the house of representatives.

The proposal, put forward by Democrat Ed Perlmutter was defeated by a 224-189 majority, according to the Huffington Post.

Handing over passwords could legally be a condition of acquiring or keeping a job, said WebProNews.
Perlmutter said of his amendment before it was defeated: 'It helps the individual protect his right to privacy and it doesn't allow the employer to impersonate that particular employee when other people are interacting with that person across social media platforms.

 Quoting: Sleeping Giant


Well heck, how about a key to my front door, and copies of my bank and credit card statements each month?

I'm not entirely certain how this could possibly be enforced and how it is even legal. What if you gave them the password, then changed it?

If this bullshit comes to Canada - I'm quitting North America.

As an employer, I would never require someone to hand over what I consider outside work information. It's stupid, nosey, and way too invasive.

What someone does outside thier time on my clock is really not much my consern until it affects job performance or company image. For either of those, FB doesn't matter. If they want to vent and tell thier friends what an asshole boss I am (which I am not, but if they did), so f'n what?

I'll do a background check upon hiring and call a few references (as if someone is going to give a bad one...), do a quick google search, and have dinner with them. Amazing what one can glean about someone over a good meal. That gives me all I need to know.

Any employer wanting FB info...too many HR people looking for something to do.

cheers
