Corporations and agencies around the country are asking job seekers for access to their social media accounts. While the legality of such a request is still unclear, the more immediate concern is around the obvious invasion of personal privacy. In the past, if a company asked for access to your personal diary during a job interview, would you have complied? If all employers were forced to divulge everything they did in their youth, or in their private lives, many more Americans would be unemployed today. Companies have numerous other tools to check and qualify candidates without invading an applicant's private life.

Sign this petition today to prevent corporations from requiring applicants to provide access to Facebook and social media content.

Admittedly, this issue may not apply for some cases related to federal and local law enforcement agencies, companies with government contracts for highly classified work, or legal issues that can arise post-employment.

Job seekers in private industry should not have to "voluntarily" share or be pressured to provide access to their private lives to a prospective employer.
