Employers warned not to ask for Facebook passwords

The practice has reportedly grown more commonplace as companies increasingly regard profiles – or embarrassing photos from wild nights out – as windows into a prospective employee’s character.

On Friday, Facebook Inc’s Chief Privacy Officer, Erin Egan, posted a note warning that the social networking company could “initiate legal action” against employers that demand Facebook passwords.
