    When I read this the other day, I thought hell no. Reality is if you are hungry or been out of work a bit, you know you would give it up and hope the work police didn't somehow become offended.

    I think in modern times, you need to assume companies will at a minimum Google and FB you. Not much shows when you google me, and I'm crazy careful with permissions and content of what I post on FB. It's a slippery slope tho...what I find offensive/wrong may not be what a business does. If that were the case and it cost me a job, my arrogant self would say "I didn't want to work for people like that anyway." However, if I were hungry or facing financial hurdles, it would be completely different.

    The industries I've worked in for the last 20+ years have required me to have background investigations at a minimum. Most times it's background that also includes criminal and financial screens. Clean living so far, but scary to think where I would be with a foreclosure, bankruptcy or a DUI in my past. I'm also thankful for not having access to the internet and cell phone cameras during my teens/twenties -- no need to record the worst of those years for all the world to witness!

    Potential employers can search all they want. I've never had a facebook account. Am I missing anything? I highly doubt it.

    Nothing wrong with searching, Something wrong with asking you password to get access and not only see everything you posted, but PMs and everything. Little thing called invasion of privacy. Oh, silly me, I forgot, 1984 has passed and we are living it.

    They have the laws, they just need some enforcement.
