In the U.S. employers are now trying to find out more about a prospective employee. They are now asking your social networking logins (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace…) make sure to clean your profile before they check.

This information can easily be used by identity thieves, and no employer would need to know this information to make a hiring decision.
