    By passwords, they mean access to all privately kept information you might have. I dont have a Facebook, so this doesnt affect me, but I would assume that some of you do, and I might also assume you have information there you wouldnt want CERTAIN people seeing.

    Thoughts?

    I wish that I could be surprised by this. I've heard of employers telling their employees that they will be terminated if it's found that they mentioned their place of employment on FB and twitter, but then again that would be considered a violation of a signed confidentiality agreement. They don't realize that the ones doing the things they're paranoid about, are usually the ones too inept to change their privacy settings, or are too proud of their own stupidity to do so. How many people have gotten busted for different things over the past couple of years because they plastered it all over FB without thinking of who all could see it?

    If you post something that can get you in trouble on the internet, you're an idiot... It's as simple as not posting something that can get you in trouble.

    Also, learn to use privacy settings.

    I'll eat taco fillings out of a streetwalker's butt-cheeks before I willing let my college go through my Facebook just to attend there. Not only will they lose my charming presence, they'll lose my business. I don't see this lasting long.

    Just another reason why I'm thinking of deleting my Facebook.

    [Or least deleting every post and using it simply as a messaging system.]
    No power in the 'verse can stop me...

    The privacy settings are what this is about, Colleges and Employers want to bypass all your privacy settings to look at anything you might be doing or saying. Otherwise it wouldnt be a big deal because no information is really personal anymore.

    I'd just keep looking if any employer requested my PW.. I'm an honest gal.. No wild parties no I hate my life rants on FB. I have my mom and my two older bro's added as friends. As well as a few aunts/cousins/extended fam. If it's something I don't want my mom to see, I just don't post it. I keep my FB organized, I'd hate having it a hot mess of just stupidity and hate. Only good things plz.

    But asking for my pw is too much.. I do not approve of anyone asking for my pw on anything.

    I believe we have "invasion of privacy" laws for a reason.
    I find that this violates those laws.
    Then again I've been asked questions in interviews that they are no longer allowed to ask >_>

    I don't have much to hide if they'll have access to my Facebook. If I want to rant about anything to anyone, I just talk one on one with them, not really on Facebook. Number two, isn't that invasion of privacy? o_O; If so I don't think they're allowed to do so, I mean it's none of their businesses. I just have close friends, family from here and far away, and everything. What I do in my statuses is post random stuff, but nothing so deep, send some IMs here and there. Not much drama there, and I play a few games there.
    If they gain access to my Facebook account, they'll probably f*ck up my farm. >_> /plays Farmville And I'll be angry!

    It doesn't say stealing passwords, just bypassing privacy. This won't be as bad as you think. You'll have to approve it or something.
    I mean i won't be able to say im a business and then say im considering pemploying you and then see all your details.

    Could be a Facebook group thing though.
    Facebook knows what it's doing, it has to maintain *some* level of privacy.

    An employer of mine looked up my Facebook after my interview. I felt it was a bit weird :s even though my privacy settings are all on

    ^ That's what a lot of people do since more and more employers want to see your FB and add you and stuff.

    A lot of people just make more professional ones, or say that they don't have one.

    It's not all that hard to facebook search somebody if you know what they look like, where they live, etc, and lying is just a recipe for disaster if they actually checked.

    Though of course, if the name is common it would prove more time consuming... But not impossible. I doubt I could ever get away with something like that considering that both profiles under my name are me... (my old profile didn't like me accessing it from Mexico and apparently I'm functionally challenged when it comes to confirming my identity)

    This is totally not right, asking for a persons face book password is like asking them for the keys to their house. I would never agree to that.

    I have a facebook, but I don't use it all that much. They wouldn't get my stuff because I would not even tell them I have one. If they found out I don't have much on there my friends can't see or don't already know about me.

    I do believe this is an invasion of privacy. What happens on Facebook really is not your school's or employer's business. Sure, you can add your boss or your teacher if you're friends and all but knowing the they have your password and can access your account at any moment sort of kills the purpose of privacy settings and Facebook itself, doesn't it? Instead of freely posting whatever about your life you are now monitoring every one of your status updates. You and your friends aren't going to brag about that awesome time you had at that theme park the same or anything. No more cursing without raising suspicion and such. And thats another thing, freedom of speech! I know there are certain things you can't say because of actual laws, but come on. Are you really going to like hearing from your boss/principle that you are no longer allowed to post status updates about anime, for example? Trust me. Sooner or later, they're going to be limiting what you're allowed to post without consequences. Thats taking away your freedom of speech.

    I guess I really did make a smart move when I made my Facebook. No real last name, no phone number, no real birthdate, no information about schools on my page, doesn't say where I live, I never post my location online no matter what. Go me! Now let's see if they find me.

    And @plumpuff I think you only have to tell them that and you'll be fine. They might ask you to prove it so provide them with your name (well, they should already know that really) and they'll do a quick search on Facebook or something. I don't really know but I believe thats a good enough guess. They can't kick you out because "every teenager is supposed to have a Facebook".

    mmm, well I never use my own FB and all I do post is pretty much random thoughts/ideas..
    so I wouldn't worry much on my end.. since there's nothing to hide xD
    unless, you've done some "strange" stuff by FB messagings and such then yeah, start worrying, and disable your FB, xD

    I just cam across this article: http://news.yahoo.com/facebook-warns-employers-dont-ask-passwords-163806953.html
    Facebook is now telling employers that they shouldn't be doing this. Wonder if this will do anything or not?
