Facebook should remain private
Facebook passwords should be private [“Bill would let bosses seek their workers’ Facebook passwords,” NWWednesday, April 3].
Facebooks are usually public, meaning you can see the stream and pictures — pretty much anything a person posts — without even being friends with the person on Facebook.
If the profile is private, then the boss may add the person on Facebook. Being part of the company, they will most likely add the boss and the boss will be able to look at the profile. Making the employee give the boss his or her password is a privacy violation.
Allowing bosses to ask for passwords may make it so the boss changes, writes or adds things to the profile that they later can use against the employee.
