Interviewers Should Ask to See Facebook Pages

Because they can easily learn so much about applicant bad habits, right?

Or maybe not. Let us never forget that one is not supposed to inquire about a job applicant's marital status, age or various other characteristics. In fact, if one does it can lead to quite amusing legal consequences for the interviewer's organisation.

I just saw this on today's O'Reilly's Four Short Links, part of a feed for programmers and other geeks.
