Social media is a place to share personal information and can be a place to mine information about others. Because of this, students, job applicants and employees are repeatedly warned to limit what they post in social media at the risk of being passed over for admission, a new job or losing their current employment.
Some employers have demanded access to password protected social media as a condition to being considered for employment. Several states, including Michigan, have now prohibited such coerced access to social media.
