I already said my piece about the original post, but does anyone else think sites like Facebook and Twitter are becoming too involved in everything? I know it's because of all the people that visit it, but it's like you don't exist if you don't have a Facebook account any more.
It seems like everything nowadays recommends (or requires in some instances) that you log in with Facebook. So, someone hacks my Facebook account and not only to they have access to everything posted on Facebook, but also all the sites you used it to log in with, which most likely are listed on your profile as well. Weren't we always told to use different passwords for sites. Well now it seems like we are all going back to using one password to protect all the sites we use.
I mean, with the employers look at your Facebook account, they could also see that you use other sites or that you use a specific car insurance brand or whatever. Plus, my family owns a business and I occasionally help with hiring and we aren't allowed to ask how old they are despite the fact generally high school/college students apply. Doesn't forcing them to show you their Facebook kinda defeat that thing? Or possibly, sexual orientation or other personal things that aren't really related to how well you can handle the job?
