So that's one more reason not to use those things.

They are not called "social media" because companies can pry. Social media is about communication.
And post 9/11, cameras on the streets may be focused on folks bedrooms.

The reality is its always safe to assume one should not enter stuff on the net they would not wish seen by all.

Corps have asked for passwords per news reports, so they would not be asking if they were given access w/o the password.

Go one step better, and don't even have an account on those sites.
Why would one patronize a site like that?

I paid to run a background check on myself and google myself on regular basis while I'm job hunting. That way there are no surprises lurking out there. Have a very unique name, only three people with my name in the U.S., so lucky for me the other two guys with my name have their act together as well. (one is my dad, so he better stay in line)
What's a good site for background checks? And how much are they?

My youngest neice should graduate next year, and she'll most likely fare worse than her sister who graduated in 2004. Hopefully, someday we'll return to unemployment rates like we had than.
Yeah I think graduates who graduated after 2007 had it the worst. I'm a 2010 graduate and it's been nothing but hell ever since then just finding ANYTHING out there. Nepotism is really big here because it's small instead of going with the most qualified person.

I feel this way, at least the older people got to enjoy their youth without worrying about how they are going to pay their bills, student loans, and food on the table like younger people have to do right now.

My father at least got to enjoy building his own house and having many cars when he was younger than I am right now. *sigh* I wish I knew that feeling.
