  1. Senators probe prying employers

    UNITED STATES: Two senators announced on Sunday that they are asking Attorney-General Eric Holder to investigate whether employers asking job applicants for their Facebook passwords breaks federal law.

    Democratic Senators Chuck Schumer of New York and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut believe the practice, which is growing in the US, could violate the Stored Communications Act and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

    “In an age where more and more personal information is online it is vital that individuals be allowed to protect personal information from would-be employers,” Mr Schumer said.

    #AceSecurityNews says the fact Facebook did a deal sometime ago, underlies the use of “Social Media’s Data” as a tool to control peoples views! To often they have been sadly lacking in their privacy and to that end, have allowed themselves to be bought on the back of trading their wares! Check out using certain apps who is monitoring your Facebook page? #privacy what #privacy
