Oh hell no, I'd refuse. You expect them to look at it, fine I have nothing to hide. You expect, especially government jobs that they will do an extensive background check, fine, but actually asking for login info? Absolutely not.

Anyone who says they would refuse probably is not in a financial bind. I would probably do it, because if I didn't I could be unemployed.

I have been unemployed and in a bind, and I turned down jobs that weren't right for me. It's very difficult not knowing if there is something else around the corner. I didn't say it would be easy but a person has to draw their lines.

That would really piss me off. I'm more aware of what I say now, since I've got most of the office on Facebook, but there's a line.

That article about password privacy and the student talked about employers demanding passwords. Makes me happy to be a relic and not be on Facebook.

That will probably become standard, unless the law can overturn it.

I agree Cobbler. I have many coworkers and families that I work with on FB, so I watch what I say, and I have my friends divided into groups so that I can control who sees what (and who has to put up with my U2 ramblings. )

I would never have a problem with my employer seeing my page, but to demand my password, which would give them access to private emails and such, goes too far, IMO.

I'll be sure to deactivate my Facebook when I have job interviews lined up (it's really easy to reactivate it).

I don't see any justification for this.

If you read the article, the guy wanted to work for a lobbying firm. If he is bashing the firm or industry all over social networks, than why should they not have a right to know. No one has to to have a FB page. And nothing on FB is really provate. Post a racist joke, or some other such thing. And sure enough one of your friends, or friends of friends will copy it and pass it on.

But your messages ARE private.

I don't believe that. What guarantee do you have?

I'm not sure what you mean. Do you have a Facebook? There is a place where you can post things for everyone (if your page is public), or at least your friends (if your page is private). And then there is a chat and message feature which only goes between you and a person you are chatting with. The latter is not the business of your employer, but would be accessible if they were to have your password.

Yes, fine for an employer to be interested in what you are blasting out publicly or semi-publicly, especially if it's a more sensitive business/industry/role, but asking for passwords and access to the private side of facebook is exactly the same as asking for your gmail password or something, ie, fuck off, absolutely no reason why that would be necessary and its certainly not acceptable.
