New Bill Banning Employer Facebook Snooping Introduced In Congress.

When I read that title, I thought "Huh? How are they going to stop people reading your public Facebook page, that doesn't make sense."
Then I read the actual article, and discovered that "Facebook Snooping" was shorthand for "extortion and identity theft" - because that's what it boils down to, if you demand someone's password. That's outrageous! Appalling!
I'm glad that some of the US politicians actually do care about privacy. It's kind of sad that a specific bill has to be introduced to cover this, though.
