Diablo III Beta Key Giveaway

Though not noted on the U.S. site, the European Diablo III Page has word on a Diablo III beta key giveaway on the Diablo Facebook Page (thanks Gamer's Hell). Here's word:

Whoa, we're halfway there! If youíre still praying for a Diablo III beta key, take heart. We've gone through half of the keys we're giving out on Facebook, but the glass is still half full, so be sure to sign up for the sweepstakes if you havenít already. Every Monday, we're picking 200 lucky entrants to receive a key, and every fourth person will hit the jackpot and receive an additional key to give to a friend. Give it a shot!

If you haven't entered yet, you can do so at the Diablo III Beta Key Sweepstakes page.

Why?
For one, having a Facebook account is normal now. It's a sign of a decently adjusted social person. Not having one sends off alarms of Unabomber.

But even then, perhaps the profile is just hard to find, so not a huge deal. ...
Which candidate do you think the recruiter will be acting on?
Obviously this is the difference between Canada and the US. In Canada, requiring something like that is a violation of the employment and hiring act. Plus in Canada, despite being prolific at having FB accounts, privacy of the individual still reigns supreme, because it's protected in codified law.

To plenty of people, having a FB account means that it's a cry for attention, because you don't get enough of it.

Obviously you misunderstand. No one is requiring anything, but it makes someone easier to recommend. This isn't rocket science - anything that fleshes you out more as a normal, enjoyable, intelligent human being will help you get a job. If two candidates are identical on paper but one has an internet presence that shows him as a guy you'd like to work on a project and the other is just a black hole you'd be more likely to pick up the phone and call the first guy. Again, this isn't a requirement, just a way to game human psychology.

And yes, to plenty of people do use it for attention, but that's not its only function, and to avoid it because it can be abused by attention whores makes it seem like you're afraid you would be unable to help yourself from abusing it. Don't like it much? Don't use it much. And block people that abuse it. But to say it's useless and only for attention whores is ridiculous. It's the best way to do any networking. Want a new job? Facebook. Want donations for the charity 5K you're running? Facebook. Want people to help you move? Facebook.
