Employers require your Facebook password?

Could your employer or college start requiring you to provide them with your Facebook password?

According to an article on Yahoo! , more and more of them are doing it.

The idea is to find out if there's anything on your page, be it postings or pictures, that make you an undesirable candidate.

In other cases, some government agencies, like Maryland's Department of Corrections, asks those applying for jobs to log into their account and let the interviewer see what's on their wall and click through their albums.

Some colleges require athletes to have their coach as a friend so they can monitor their activity.

How do you feel about this?

If your admission into a certain college or a job were on the line, would you hand over your Facebook password?

Or, do you think this is a complete invasion of privacy?
