...to demand info that leads to your social network sites? Do they have the right to view your MySpace, Facebook, Cafemom, etc? Some can argue that the employer should have the right to know what you are like outside of work, but then what a person is like outside of work could be totally different than their work persona. What you do outside of work has no bearing on your ability to do the job, KWIM?
I've been asked and I usually tell them that it's either none of their business or that I just plain don't have a profile anywhere. They would have to know my user name and since most of my sites are unsearchable or private, there is nothing to find or see. My life on the outside has no bearing on my job or what I am like at work.
What do you think?

I don't think they have a right to ask or demand, but if they find it themselves because you were careless enough to use your name and they see something they consider detrimental to the company then that is your problem. The internet is the same as public. Don't do anything on the net that you wouldn't do in front of your Grandmother.
