According to a press release issued Friday: "The extent of our request for a candidate's password, user name, or other internet information appears to have exceeded that which is acceptable to our community. We appreciate the concern many citizens have expressed regarding this practice and apologize for the negative impact this issue is having on the City of Bozeman."
1. Personal information shall not be collected by a collector for inclusion in a record or in a generally available publication unless:
a) the information is collected for a purpose that is a lawful purpose directly related to a function or activity of the collector; and
(b) the collection of the information is necessary for or directly related to that purpose.
If you look at this policy and your response is, "Don't use Facebook!" then respectfully, I think you're missing the point. Facebook is just a variable in this equation.
Why would you want to work for an organization that asked for this information?? moot point.
As a user, you shouldn't be forced to share your private information and communications just to get a job. And as the friend of a user, you shouldn't have to worry that your private information or communications will be revealed to someone you don't know and didn't intend to share with just because that user is looking for a job.
