Would You Give Your Facebook Login Info To A Potential Employer?

Recently, national attention was brought to the alleged practice of employers asking job applicants for their Facebook passwords in order to determine whether the individual has an appropriate social media identity. In response, Senators Charles Schumer (NY) and Richard Blumenthal (CT) have asked the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate whether the practice violates federal Law. This week on BTR Pulse, host Lauren Hawker asks New Yorkers their thoughts on the controversial topic.
