- I think Facebook is making a very clear statement:
Your data is ours and no one else's.
It has more to do with protecting FB and their inalienable right to harvest data, and less to do with protection of their users. FB protects the user base b/c it needs the user base... and b/c the information it collects is proprietary. It's a huge legal risk for them to allow anyone that is not the user contributing the data to see or explore that data. It opens legal doors that could let competitors in to access 'trade secrets'.
It's not about altruism, it's about business. Let's not delude ourselves to the contrary.Mar 24, 2012

- "I'm sorry, Interview panel, but my Facebook account contains information about me that you cannot legally ask for, to include my age, my gender (although you have already determined that during the course of this interview), my marital and family status, my religious beliefs, the social clubs I may or may not belong to, my health and physical abilities, where I live (and how far my commute would be), and whether or not I currently have military service obligations.
And now that you've asked for my account information, I believe you have asked me for ALL of those things, and should it come to pass that an offer of employment is not forthcoming, my lawyer will be in touch.
Good day, ladies and gentlemen - have a *wonderful* remainder of your afternoon."

- Think asking for employee's social media password is the most stupid thing to surrender to an employer. As an employer, might require employees to sign a code of ethics, but would NEVER ask for passwords. Would nicely say "hell would freeze over" before my employer would get my passwords.Mar 25, 2012
