Employers Are Requesting Facebook Access Of Job Seekers

I have tried and tried and tried until I am blue in the face to forewarn and advise people that they need to be careful of what they write on the internet and social media. I have attempted to explain that their employers and/or potential employers are looking at their internet comments when considering employment decisions. Many of my much younger relatives, younger friends, and others have pooh-poohed me.

Well, today, I read an interesting article related to my concerns in a local newspaper that I have also found on Yahoo! News and that is attributed to Manuel Valdes and Shannon McFarland of the Associated Press. Click on over to read the article for yourself:
Employers ask job seekers for Facebook passwords.

The news about this topic along with the controversy surrounding it are all over the place in hardcopy written form and in electronic media on the internet. Here, take a look at what may be found on the internet in response to the question:
Should employers ask job-seekers for Facebook passwords?
