The Farce of Facebook

So I see Facebook has taken exception with employers that are asking job applicants for passwords to their Facebook accounts. Refreshing change coming from the biggest violator of online privacy, huh?

From a PR standpoint, sure. But what if this is just a huge ploy to get them some positive press? Or to hide some other more nefarious privacy issue? Here’s what I imagine an exchange sounded like between Zuckerburg and some underlings:

Underling1: Heya, Mark. We are taking a beating in the press and I think we need to…

 

Zuckerburg: WAY ahead of ya dude. I reached out to a few developers and employers and promised them some ransom for making us look better when they start asking applicants for their Facebook passwords and to show them private info.
