The community closed the following question:
How do prospective employers screen private social networking profiles?
It had quite a bit of NC content and rightfully should have been closed because of this. I had edited this out easily and it leaves the very important and interesting question...
"How do companies perform social media background checks?"
I feel it is a valid concern as previous questions about background checks on the Workplace were also considered appropriate. The moderator asks:
IMO "How do they" shouldn't be asked unless it's been established that the answer to "Do they" is yes
I think that if the question were "Do they ..." then it would be more appropriate for Skeptics however. Also there do exist companies that specialize in this sort of background check so while it is still relatively unknown that this goes on, it is very clearly a real thing.
I believe the question is worthy of being reopened now.
