Worried about Facebook privacy

| March 28, 2012

Dear Carolyn,

Is it true that employers are starting to check your Facebook page? Do I have to give my password if I am asked to?

Jim,

Dear Jim,

I’ve heard this but not sure it’s really happening. Has anyone been asked this question by their employer or potential employer? The Interwebs are full of rumors that this is going on but here’s an article that says it’s only in government jobs.

I will tell you what I tell my kids:  Don’t put anything on Facebook you wouldn’t want your mother to read!

I’m just say’n,

Carolyn
