But it's not just employers, it's anybody. Anybody with accessible internet and good computer knowledge, which is probably about 80% of the population. People think just because they have privacy settings, they have control over who sees what. Think about it for a second. You are putting information out there on the internet - the most widely available venue for information distribution and exchange on the entire planet. And you are putting it out there willingly. If gov't agencies can get scammed or banks can be hacked into or IDs can be stolen, what the heck are you thinking if you believe anything is private or protected?
Seriously people need to get their head out of the sand. Wake up and smell the information technology.
