    Fast becoming a yesterday fad.


    I am hearing that young people at the college level who are entering the work force are being told to cancel their account to avoid a future employer from seeing any info that might prevent them from being hired. If you are looking to go into law enforcement... you will HAVE to turn over your password to them and they can then review everything you have done.
    Very stupid to have these accounts.

      Our HR Department checks this, Linked in and job postings. Amazing how many are disqualified. FB. Our "logic" failed us. mr_in_out reply to my post clarified my question of privacy and hype. Perhaps this is why I avoid such stocks. I was going to gamble at $20 but I cannot invest in this manner. mr_in_out has right idea. The trend is the masses. New lesson for the old dog if I care to gamble in this arena. Will stick with Vegas. Room upgrade if losses incurred.

        You are naive. You may have nothing to hide but do you know what your "friend" is doing? Guilt by association. This forum is as far as I will go. Our HR always checks for a web presence. FB, Linked in, or job posting websites. We know when an employee is looking to jump ship. We know if the person is private or public. This could mean they would share our internal business with others without thinking.
