President-elect Obama is requiring prospective aides to disclose, in a 9-page questionnaire, ALL social interactions and presence including blog posts, comments and “any Web sites that feature you in either a personal or professional capacity”. This also means disclosing Facebook profiles, MySpace pages and even posts on Match.com.
“…that requirement would force applicants to disclose information about Facebook and MySpace pages, profiles posted on dating Web sites, and even what was posted on Web sites like CNET and YouTube that allow readers to append comments.”
Should companies be forcing their applicants to do the same?
