    I think it's a great idea for companies to do this

    if you dumb enough to post crazy shit who fault is that?

    and companies should be able to ask for your password, cause what is the difference if someone hacks into your page anyways

    the company should perform due diligence in order to protect proprietary information

    a lot of people are dumb and will inadvertently share all kinds of shit over the net :shrugs

    well thats just dumb.

    this is just as bad as asking "are you married" or "do you plan on having children"

    you all need to learn workplace laws, and fast.

    this shit is getting crazy. not only do they drug test you, ask for your background, but now they want to monitor us when we aint on the clock?
    i could understand if i was wearing the company shirt and at the club or some shit. but nyaaaaaaaah nigga that shit don't sound right.

    can't believe the shit you all tolerate or are in agreement with.
    what happened to right to privacy?

    but yall just go on and be good lil lemmings.

    so if you own a business, it's ok for some fucknut to post your proprietary info online just because his/her page is private?

    c'mon broski.........you don't HAVE to work there if you don't want to

    so you telling me you comfortable with someone who has access to your personal info (say like a person at a bank) not having to be checked to see if they post dumb shit online?

    c'mon bruh.........I'm all for freedom, but it isn't mandatory to have a facebook page

    there's a fine line between privacy being violated and just being liberal to be difficult

    Yeah, writing laws in the 18th century English is just confusing outside of lawmakers and people who studied law extensively. Again, blame the baby boomers for this crazy shit for the sake of saving a few dollars doing unrealistic and outdated practices.

    not when it comes to facebook/twitter/other social networks fam

    getting your money's worth back in court is a hassle compared to just checking to see if cuzzo is a dumbass beforehand

    nothing is requiring people to post dumb shit on facebook


    how a nigga gon get mad because he got denied for a job when he got "hood pics" on the net for the whole world to see?

    the internet is not private SMH

    the internet is not private SMH

    if the account is private then why do they care?
    i could understand snooping around an open account, but not one set to private.

    this is just like buying a house then having your NCO do a walk thru 4 months later calling it a Health and Welfare inspection.(never had it happen told them about me when they said that shit)
    "bitch this mine!!!"
    i could understand living on base, but nah... i worked for this.

    cause it can be hacked

    but the real reason companies are doing this is because of asymmetric(sp?) information

    it's way easier to weed thru candidates who got something to hide, or can't at least use decent judgment when on social networks

    a lot of mofos discount the value of privacy and do all sorts of dumb shit online

    if I plan on paying you $100K to work for me, I want to at least know you got some type of discretion :shrugs

    you don't hear me fam

    setting your shit to private is like having a filthy barracks room, then shoving everything of filth in your closet at the last minute in an attempt to prepare for a room inspection


    I reiterate, the internet is not private at all

    mofos hack shit all the time

    all somebody has to do is know who you are and where you work..........that's all it takes to gain a mofos interest enough to hack yo shit

    don't believe me, look at this site for example


    most mofos on this site don't know what I do for a living now even tho I pop a lot of shit on here

    and it would cost me and my company a lot of money if I accidentally disclosed some shit

    the only people who would have a problem with a company looking at your facebook are mofos who ain't used to high paying jobs...........checking your facebook is no different than background check

    you'll piss in a cup, but won't give up a password? as an employer, that would raise a serious red flag for me

    yeah cause i can blow that bitch up and have it spilling all over they fingers.
    a password to something that they are not paying more for, there had better be a damn incentive added on to that.
    shit, the fuck is the point of that, if i have my shit set to private then chances are im either a) a private person b)paranoid c)a private damn person

    come on man.

    but there is an incentive tho

    the job is paying you if you get it

    like I said, if I'm searching thru candidates and deciding who to pay $100K to, why wouldn't I look at your social network page if a potential hacker could do the same

    see, that's the problem with this new internet saavy generation

    mofos forget that they could decide to run for president one day..............then get culled out of the race on some Cain type shit over their business being all over the net



    hell even them Mexican cartel niggaz ain't hiring if you putting all yo biz out on social networks LOL

    but niggaz still ain't hearing me tho

    People underestimated social networking. Really did. Its still relatively new and people are already doing practices to go against your privacy. Old heads need to back down and let the net heads prevail.

    My Facebook account ain't even in my real name. I would just tell them that I ain't got one. And I would know better than to get on FB at work on their premises

    no matter how you slice this shit, its invasive and only sets a precedent for even more fuckery.

    its already disgusting that they do credit reports. niggas got fucked up credit because they're financially distressed but, now can't find a legal way to fix that problem because firms think they're unreliable. fuck the system man LMAO.

    They can look if they want to, I only use it to look at other peoples accounts. I never post anything on it, nor use it to message people.

    Now, my dummy accounts on the other hand.....
