The Social Networking Online Protection Act has been reintroduced in Congress. The bipartisan bill would restrict employers and schools from asking employees, applicants or students for their personal passwords to social networks such as Facebook. "The lack of clarity in [current] law puts individuals in a position where they either have to give up vital, private information, or risk losing their job, potential job, or enrollment in school and involvement in the school's sports programs," says one of the bill's sponsors, Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y.
