Miles on Facebook Passwords in Job Interviews

I know, I know . . . this topic never gets old! In any event, I authored an article for the Centre Daily Times, Welcome, What's Your Password? The article covers some of the risks of job interviews in which the employer demands a social media password. It is intended for a mainstream audience, and approaches the subject from both the employer and employee perspective. Enjoy!

You may also want to check out my previous blog entries on this subject, including:
Wow, I didn't realize I had written quite that much about this topic. Bottom line: demanding/providing social media login information at a job interview is probably a bad idea for employers and employees alike. And, depending on your state and the pending acts of various legislatures, possibly illegal.
