Enjoy this interesting angle on the practice of some employers of asking potential hires to log onto their Facebook accounts during the interview. As if I didn't have enough reasons to think that this practice is ridiculous and incredibly invasive.
Another view of the effect of the zero-privacy now on the workforce:

Reposting from Ethan Currens' ever-awesome gchat status

One thing the author does not point out (probably to his credit) is that the practice of reading applicants' facebook profiles offers an opportunity to create pseudo-incriminating information as a tactical advantage. The author criticizes the practice of explicitly trawling applicants' social media profile, but ignores the option of simply publishing massive amounts of data about oneself. In a province where paternity leave is guaranteed, publishing (so that it comes up on first-google of your name) that you have a baby on the way would be a sure-fire way to expose any potential hirer to the kind of liability the author calls out here, and thus, to get the job.

Share this as much as you can.
Alright guys, this is the last time I'm going to bring this up. Please copy and reblog this image as much as possible. Hopefully we can get people's attention and stop Congress from approving this disastrous piece of legislation.

Thanks!
