Applying for jobs can be stressful in and of itself, but what if you were required to turn over private information in order to get hired???
No need to completely sanitize your online identity just yet. Two U.S. Senators have begun investigating a practice that’s been occurring where bosses’ ask for info, like Facebook passwords, in the hiring process.
One of the lawmakers looking into this, Senator Charles Schumer, says:
This is just sickening.
By now we're sure you're all aware of the Tyler Clementi case. Dharun Ravi spied on Tyler, his college roomie, via webcam and invited Twitter followers to watch Tyler and male friends gettin' it on. Upon finding out, Tyler jumped off a bridge.
Well it was recently brought to light that right after Ravi tweeted the times to check in on his webcam feed, he immediately tweeted right after an "oops" message.
They went like this
After over a year since Tyler Clementi tragically jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge, his Rutgers University roommate Dahrun Ravi, who many blame for the suicide since he filmed the gay teen being intimate with another man in their room via webcam, will finally stand trial for multiple counts of invasion of privacy, witness tampering, hindering prosecution and bias intimidation, and could face up to ten years in prison if convicted!
The jury selection is set to begin

You're doing the right thing, Hugh! We continue to support this!
Then, earlier today, we heard AWFUL
Prosecutors are hoping that the identity of the man who was caught on tape with college student Tyler Clementi will be kept anonymous.
Lawyers for Dharun Ravi, who was accused of spying and filming Tyler having an intimate encounter with a man, only known as M.B., filed for a motion to reveal his identity so that they can ask him questions to help further their case.
In case you don't remember the story, Tyler committed suicide after the video of him and M.B. were filmed by his roommate, Ravi, and was posted on the internet.
Ravi was charged with bias intimidation and invasion of privacy and faces a possible sentence of 10 years in prison.
Clementi's lawyers want to keep M.B.'s name, address, and birthday from being released.
And we completely agree. Lawyers for Ravi have no right in possibly revealing M.B.'s identity. The last thing anyone wants is to have another tragedy on their hands.
Unbelievable! Such an invasion of privacy!
Hugh Grant recently revealed that he plans to press charges against Rupert Murdoch's London tabloid News of the World, because he claims that they hired a private detective to hack into his phone and steal "all these notes with my PIN numbers, my phone numbers, my friends', my family's phone numbers, PIN numbers, bank accounts."
According to the actor, he only found this out because he was visited by Scotland Yard, who had apparently uncovered evidence suggesting all of this!
Claiming he feels certain that "big heads will roll soon," Grant says of the potential invasion of privacy lawsuit:
"I could sue, I am just deciding whether to do that or not. So little do I need the tabloid press that if I won a libel case against a tabloid paper now I would not want cash; I would want an assurance that they would never ever mention my name again."
We think that that's more than reasonable a request!
So wrong! Here's hoping they never do anything this invasive and wrong again!
