In this era o endless tweets,likes and status updates, personaldiscretion tends to yield itsel toonline ame.We’ve heard the stories: riendsand colleagues reprimanded orlet go rom their jobs ater anemployer noticed an incriminat-ing post – but what about theiruture jobs?wo Kansas Democratic law-makers, Rep. Gail Finney and Sen.Oletha Faust-Goudeau,are currently spearheadingnew legisla-tion aimed atdeending jobseekers romemployersasking or usernames and pass-words to Facebook and witteraccounts.“What you do over Facebook doesn’t haveanything todo with theduties o the job you’reapplying or,”said Faust-Goudeau inan interview with the Associated Press. “I people are out seeking gainulemployment, we shouldn’t haveother barriers keeping them romwork.”Finney, who is also pressinga bill providing similar protec-tion or students rom schoolsand universities requesting onlinelogin ino, told the AP she doesn’tthink employers have a right todemand such personal inorma-tion.his proposed bill comes aterreports last year o employersin at least ive states requestingto browse employees’ accounts,according to the AP.Following these reports, theDepartment o Justice was taskedwith determining the legality o such requests. Results, it said,were varied and inconclusive.Facebook issued a statementsoon ater, sharply criticizing suchemployers and stating that dissem-ination o a Facebook password isa violation o their Statement o Rights and Responsibilities.“As a user, you shouldn’t beorced to share your private inor-mation just to get a job,” said ErinEgan, Facebook’s Chie Privacy Oicer, in the statement.She explained that this policy isin place to protect both employeesas well as employers, warning thatuse o online material in the hir-ing process may open employersup to claims o discriminationand potential litigation.Egan added that Facebook takesprivacy seriously and promises totake action to protect the privacy and security o its users, whetherby “engaging policymakers or by initiating legal action.”Meanwhile, some local socialmedia experts ind Kansas’ new bill somewhat superluous.“Legislation like this is mere-ly precautionary,” said AaronDeacon, president o Social MediaClub o Kansas City (SMCKC).“It’s really a question o whetheryou should make laws in advanceor when there is a problem.”Deacon, who is also the manag-ing director o KC Digital Drive,an innovation team working withGoogle to bring record Internetspeeds to the Kansas City area,said he avored education overnew legislation.“People have to understandthat any indiscretions can bebrought to more and more peopleonline,” he said, adding that it isthe responsibility o online com-munities like SMCKC to teachindividuals as well as employersonline etiquette.Dave Greenbaum, a Lawrencecomputer repair technician,described using both resumematerial and mutual riends toisolate someone online or review and added that he has no needto ask or passwords because theinormation is in plain sight.“I can completely understandwhy employers want this inor-mation,” Greenbaum said. “Many times, it’s more about learningthe nuances o the applicant thatcan’t be derived rom a simpleinterview.”In a March 2012 blog post,Greenbaum oered multiple alter-natives to ull-ledged snoopingor Facebook, LinkedIn, witterand Google + and praised onlinereview.“Since witter is ‘in the moment’I get a keener picture o their per-sonality,” Greenbaum wrote in hisblog post. “Are they hotheaded?Are they a complainer? What dothey choose to share and why?”
