    If you're hiring, go to the interviewee's FB page. It will tell you more about the person than the fiction they create for the interview.

    There are companies that will give an employer a total social media review of a potential employee.

    My facebook account would be very boring to anyone looking at it. Maybe 3 posts in the last 5 years. It would still feel like an invasion of privacy to have people sift through my personal info.
    Oh well, I'm retired now, so I don't have to worry about it too much. I guess it's up to the younger generations now to determine how much of their privacy they are willing to give up.

    Then why do people stand for the act of being fired for social media?

    Because some people believe buyers of labor should have the right to stop buying it from whomever for whatever their reasons. The same way other buyers have the right to decide to stop buying from any seller.

    So if you're caught online eating fast food, i can fire you, or legally NOT hire you because of your filthy habit ? So there are no more equal opportunity, everything you do as a life choice in your spare time becomes a reason for discrimination, as long as it's not a protected class ?

    I for one would NOT want to live in that society.
