Mat Honan, who is ripping it up at Gizmodo, on employers running social media background checks on job candidates:
We ran background checks on six Gizmodo employees, including our editor in chief Joe Brown, and all but one came back clean. [..] I flunked hard. When that happens, Social Intelligence creates a report, which it would then send to an employer. And if you don’t get a job because of your social media report, you can request a copy. Mine’s filled with delightful details, like “subject admits to use of cocaine as well as LSD,” and “subject references use of Ketamine.”
Basically, I may never work again.
