Many people are outraged over the news that some employers are demanding passwords to job seekers' Facebook and e-mail accounts.
Now, even public officials are weighing in on the controversy. Officials are wondering if this is a violation of privacy and are even asking the feds to investigate.
There are more than 800-million people on Facebook worldwide.
But, what would happen to that number if employers were demanding Facebook passwords from job seekers?
"On Facebook I connect with me and my family. And that should stay between me and my family," says Leonardo Colon.
Many college students at Utica College are strongly against the idea.
"You can tell someone's whole life on social media," says one student.
Some even say it wouldn't be fair.
"That's a private part of your life. I don't think they need access to all of that. It may be used as a tool of judgment. It may weigh the ability of you to get a job," says Jabari Scutchins.
Katie Gleitsmann, a senior at U.C. says she would respectfully walk out of the interview.
"I really don't think any job is worth that invasion of privacy. It's one thing to be involved in an environment you love. But, if an employer is going to ask you for that, what other thing are they going to ask you for? What else is it going to mean to work for that company," asks Katie.
Senator Charles Schumer is also raising questions and is demanding the department of justice and the equal employment opportunity commission to launch a federal investigation.
He says ," this is especially important during the job-seeking process, when all the power is on one side of the fence. Before this disturbing practice becomes widespread, we must have an immediate investigation into whether the practice violates federal law."
Other students say they are already cautious of what goes on their social media websites, but they say if employers are requiring passwords, they say they would ditch Facebook altogether.
