POLL: Should Hiring Companies Ask for Facebook Information?
Some employers are asking for login information of potential job seekers.
Imagine utilizing all of Facebook's privacy settings to the maximum so that only your closest family and friends can see your personal profile.
Now imagine interviewing for a job and having that employer ask for your login information in order to get a better look at your personal life.
That's exactly what some hiring companies are doing across the country, according to a Boston.com report Tuesday.
But the legality of the move is being called into question, and is actually being brought to the forefront in such states as Illinois and Maryland, where proposed legislation would forbid public companies from asking for such information, according to Boston.com.
