In response to ‘quickly evolving technologies’, California has passed legislation preventing employers and public and private post-secondary educational institutions from requiring or requesting an employee or a student, prospective student or student group to disclose ‘personal social media information’, including user names and passwords, or from accessing personal social media information in the presence of the employer or the institution’s employee or representative, as the case may be. Disciplinary action may not be taken against an employee or student for a refusal to disclose social media information, although this does not affect existing rights to protect against and investigate alleged misconduct or violations of the law, or to take adverse action for any lawful reason.

So, Facebook photos of what happened on that day off or at the frat house are off-limits – but then again, maybe not.
