A while ago...

A while ago I blogged about prospective employers demanding Facebook passwords...and got comments on G+ in which I wasn't believed.

Now, the story has exploded. A teacher has been fired for refusing to provide her password (Admittedly, the school district had probable cause, but...)

So, I'm going to, once more, remind that giving anyone your Facebook password is breach of your contract with Facebook. Employers...do you really want somebody working for you who will break a contract with somebody else?

Facebook is also threatening to sue companies that demand that users hand over their passwords. Whatever you feel about Facebook, they're definitely on the side they should be - that of their users.
