Some employers and college are asking to see applicants' Facebook pages from job applicants and student athletes, according to a report on Tuesday.
MSNBC's Red Tape Chronicles blog said job applicants at the Maryland Department of Corrections have been asked to log into their accounts so that interviewers could see their wall posts, friends, photos and anything else they may have behind the social network's privacy wall...
...Facebook spokesperson Frederic Wolens said many such school and employer policies appear to violate the site's terms.

Who would believe that???
What's there to be stuck on? It's a pretty self explanatory statement, yes?
Who would believe that???
I couldn't care less who believes it....it happens to be true. I don't have HBO either.
—I got mine after the men in black came through the neighborhood and terrified all of our neighbors, asking questions about me.—
I...don’t...remember... There was this flash and then...
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
I try to hide my true "lonely stalker" character when meeting an attractive woman. The last thing I want is for her to see my true character if I think I have a chance with her. :-) And as for "favorite haunts" I would be very surprised to see her just plop down on my couch with some nachos and a beer.
Do you regularly cheat on your taxes? Would you like a higher level job in the Department of Treasury... maybe even the Secretary?
“......I know of a certain agency of the U.S. government that uses a highly effective technique in vetting prospective employees. Better than snooping into someone’s decoy Facebook account. Seemingly idle warm up chat leading to the interview elicits your responses to such things as your favorite haunts (restaurants, bars, etc.). Then, the agency arranges to send an attractive undercover female (or as the case would be male) agent to “chat you up” at the bar over a couple of drinks, or in the park on a nice sunny day, with a view towards establishing your true character and personal habits. Works like a charm.
Wow, most of the US Govt Agencies I’m familiar with are MAINLY interested in your gender, race, ethnicity and whether you’re a member of a “protected class”. “True character” would be an after thought at best—probably right down as a low priority along with actual competency.
I don’t trust Facebook. I reluctantly started a page with a pseudonym 2 years ago just so I could visit and post on Mark Levin’s FB page. I don’t have any friends or belong to any groups. And that’s the way I like it!
All three are allowed due to the fact they are from different sources. :)
