Should You Have to Provide Social Network Passwords to Employers? [POLL]

It’s becoming more and more prevalent for employers and colleges to ask for and even demand your personal passwords for social networks, like Facebook and Twitter. Some employers will actually make you log into your account so they can scan your posts and photos before hiring you. Colleges are demanding that athletes provide passwords to the school or even require that you “friend” your coach so they can keep an eye on you, if you don’t allow this then you don’t play.  I personally think this is wrong and so do many privacy advocates. When you’re not at work, that’s your time and no one should be able to tell you what you can do with it. Many states are filing bills to ban this practice.  It is actually a violation of Facebook regulations to share your password with anyone else so why schools/employers being allowed to continue? Do you think this is right?
