You might remember in early 2012 the report of an employer who was demanding that applicants turn over social media passwords. Suddenly, employees came forward with similar stories, prompting Facebook to threaten suit against employers who violate user privacy. Since then, states have jumped into action. Depending on where you live, an employer who demands your password, or even asks about your social media use, may be breaking the law.
