You live in Memphis? I'm just a few hour south of there, and I just drove through Memphis a couple of weeks ago on my way to St. Louis. I adopted my dog from the local humane society. He was an older dog and about to be put down because everyone wants to adopt puppies. I'd love to take in foster pets, but I just can't.

I live one county over, about 10 miles east of Memphis. I only rescue older dogs; but I foster anything. And my services are always needed. What do people not understand about "spay or neuter"?

You, sir, are a Saint. And I truly mean that.

For me, the only way I can rescue and foster dogs in time from the Memphis Animal shelter - which, sadly is not a no-kill shelter - is by reading the announcements on their Facebook. I just fostered five awesome pit bull puppies (all with homes now - WOOT!) that were scheduled to be destroyed at 5pm on the day the announcement came out on Facebook. If saving perfectly good dogs from unnecessary destruction requires a Facebook account, then I'll bite the bullet and do it. On another note, being an active musician without using Facebook page means being out of work quite a bit.

Last time I looked nin, alot of american companies don't believe this.

Some might say that your life outside of work is a reflection of the work you do or WHO you work for - I know my job says that. I imagine it happens a lot of places....

dear fascism: some of us are ready i guess.....

It's actually against the facebook TOS to share your facebook password with anyone but yourself.

As for illegality.. i guess it is legal to ask, but you are in your right to say NO, if a job requires you to disclose passwords of anything private give them the middle finger and walk away.

One out of every five pit bulls will permanently disfigure an infant's face. I'm not sure how you sleep at night.

Like a baby. I am not responsible that some dog owners are irresponsible idiots (who shouldn't have procreated).

Prez -- it is very cool of you to foster those dogs.

Facebook: It is here to stay for better or worse. I get why the masses are attracted to it but they might regret it down the road.

Uhmm.. 3 things here that can tuen this into a mighty big pay day.

#1 Assumed guilty with no actual proof. Just hearsay.

#2 Freedom of speech is being violated.

#3 Under the 5th, under no circumstances could the FB password be forced from you.
Umm, none of those really applies here. The only issue here is a potential case of wrongful termination, unless the employment contract specifically says that the employee must give up passwords to certain types of accounts. If that's the case, then I'd like to see whether a court believes that such a clause is actually legal.

This is why there are enterprise social networking sites like Yammer. There's no need to mix business and personal when it comes to social networking, and many reasons to avoid doing so.

If an employer wants to monitor publicly available info its employees post, I suppose that's reasonable enough and within their rights. But once they start requiring employees to let them monitor private info, that's completely crossing the line and has no reasonable justification no matter what your line of work is, IMO.

Be nice when her employer gets a letter from her attorney saying "excuse me, what part of 'invasion of privacy' don't you get?"

I suspect there will be a lawsuit heading their way. Hope they lose, and the aide gets a nice fat check.

That stuff is getting out of hand - but the lesson to be learned is - don't have FB.
