US Senator Drafts Legislation to Stop Employers Asking For Your Facebook Password [zdnet.com]
Facebook today outlined how it wants to protect its users from employers demanding access to their accounts. The company is looking to create new laws as well as take legal action against employers. Senator Richard Blumenthal is one step ahead: he’s already drafting legislation.

Blumenthal is working on a new bill that specifically bans the practice of employers asking current and prospective employees for their Facebook passwords. The Connecticut Democrat and former state attorney general says that these kind of requests are an “unreasonable invasion of privacy for people seeking work” – the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said the same thing.
