This is ridiculous!
You know, Stalin didn't have Facebook!
...That is one of the most absurd things I've heard in a long time.
Not joining Facebook usually indicate that you dont got a burning need to tell everyone you know what you had for breakfast.
Or maybe my private life is MY PRIVATE FUCKING LIFE! If I wanted to broadcast everything I do and think, I'd make TKO-RICHIO, THE ALL RICH ALL THE TIME RADIO STATION!
Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
I lol'd hard.
Hate that employers think that they are entitled to know everything about your private life.
I concur with comrades hiver and Teln. Facebook is way too hyped
Well there goes my life.
Oh wait I already worked for the US Navy.
Not joining Facebook might in fact be an indication that I have actual friends that I meet in the real, and not a buttload of people that like me on the internet?
I can not agree strongly enough with Mabus, this is very messed up, professionals so far down the rabbit hole in clik land that they no longer seem able to make objective judgment calls
And here's an interesting comment that got deleted from the article:
So the correct title for the article should be: "Is not revealing your private life to us a sign that you're a psychopath?"
That kind of shit pisses me off. They're basically admitting that they violate any sort of reasonable hiring practices imaginable.
Fuck them. More states need to pass laws about companies forcing people to allow them access to their Facebook profiles.
Now wait just a minute here lets clear this up Stalin didn't have a facebook he had TWO facebooks
the first contain pictures of the severed heads of all his former enemies. While the 2nd book contained the head shots of all the people he was going to have killed
Technially I have a facebook page.
I mean I've even logged into it twice. And I have assload of friends requests that I might get around to doing something with one day.
I just can't give a frack about Facebook I'm sorry to say ... guess I have to hunt you all down and kill you now
Stalin used "MySovietSpace".
I actually have a facebook account. I used it once to get free gold in Tribes: Ascend
I have a facebook I never actually use.
Therefore, instead of killing people in movie theaters, I am obligated to beat up old women on the street.
I have no Farcebook and don't plan to join.
Obviously I'm a psychopath and plan to kill everyone!

You don't have any friends.
This just in!
6 out of 7 people in the world are psychopaths!
(roughly 7 billion)
Shity "news" article about psychopaths not being on facebook
OMG! Those end of the world preppers are right, most people are bat-fucking insane! (except catwoman, she is legitimately allowed to use that phrase)
No, piss off!
I'm not gonna lie, I have a Facebook account and log on at least once a day. I'm not a fanatic, though, and don't post all that often. It's a tool of convenience more than anything else.
However, regarding people who don't buy into the hype regarding the latest social phenomenon as "suspicious" is absolute horse shit, bordering on some kind of weird mob rule. I agree with Minhotar's sentiments regarding employment, as well -- this is basically discriminatory hiring practice in all but name.
Facebook needs to be purged from the Internet and its corporate headquarters burned to the ground.
