No, Facebook did nothing to this man. His own stupidity did him in.

Facebook's "People You May Know" can be interesting.

One of my favorite cliches.

But I read a new one last week and it's had me laughing ever since. I wish I had screen saved it for it's been erased since then. There was some guy who was posting on a comments section of an article(these things are the cesspool of the internet yet there sometimes better than any soap opera), and he was just going on and on with these weird random homophobic attacks. He was talking about how if we "quarantined" all the gays in the 70's we wouldn't have an AIDs epedemic. I mean just some horrible awful stuff. But he kept insisting that he's not homophobic. And his final post, I shit you not:

I'm not a homophobe in fact I considered myself gay for awhile.

So maybe this is the new "I have black friends".

Facebook is a tricky thing. I think people forget to use common sense. It can be amusing though. I have had coworkers and friends posting things that have come back to bite them. Facebook and stupidity do not mix.

The essence of the problem is advertising.

As long as there are people using Facebook constantly, the more advertising flow will keep up, thereby making millions of dollars and Mark Zuckerberg richer.

Zuckerberg is not a prime example of how a successful entrepreneur should act like, moreover... to dress like.

Why is any of this a problem?

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.
