An issue that has been brought to light recently has been the introduction of employers forcing employees to give up passwords for social networks, if they wish to obtain a job. The Economist is now weighing in on the issue and, with little fanfare, is intimating that the practice is banned in other countries, most people find it offensive, and that it should be banned in the United States. This is the position Facebook has officially taken, and one which will likely permeate much of the public until the issue is resolved.
