A question that came up in the radio.

Wonder what you guys would do if you were ever in a situation like this.

fb pass is a personal thing isnt it. Dont think bosses are allowed to ask for that kind of personal stuff.
At least that would be my guess, why would your boss need your pass anyway?
So he can post redicilous stuff on your wall while you post, gtfo my fb stupid boss.

^ I don't think they want it for their personal use. I've heard recently that universities and jobs of prestige have been asking for your complete Facebook - every post you've ever posted, every picture you've ever uploaded, etc. I read somewhere that 50% or so of people regret posting certain things on their Facebook for this reason.

Anyway, I don't have Facebook. I don't like how they sell their information. Razz

I don't think that's even legal in Finland Very Happy In job interviews they are not allowed to ask personal questions that have nothing to do with the job - and personal information include passwords ^^

Ofc anyone has the right to read what you have posted on Facebook if your posts are public. So you might wanna think about what you post on fb and who can read them ^^

TO answer your question: is it worth giving out fb pass just to get hired, I would say... think about it - is the job worth it? Do you want that exact job so badly, you would do anything to be the one hired for the job?

I would have to say: NO
anytime

*Gives Law lecture*

If a senior employer asked for private information in Australia such as passwords to private information, they are actually given a criminal status. You can take them to court and sue them for big bucks Twisted Evil .

But if it were legal, I'd still say no Wink .
