(2-1) Hi, friends. Welcome to Studio Classroom Worldwide. My name is Steve. Thanks for joining us today. Our VIEWPOINTS feature this month asks the question: Should your boss be able to look at your Facebook page before hiring you? In many countries it is illegal for bosses to do this. But some do it anyway because, well, because they can. Knowing this then, maybe the question should be: If a potential boss asks you to look through your Facebook account, how would you respond?

This is an interesting discussion. That's right. You know, jobs don't usually mix with my social life. So how does Facebook work in a job interview? Well, we're asking the question now: Should your boss be able to look at your Facebook page before they hire you? Ooh. That's a very deep question. Should your boss be able to look at your Facebook page before you even get hired? I don't know, friends. My first reaction says: No! I want my privacy. Now I don't know about you, but I often don't think about my boss being able to see what I put on Facebook. So this is an excellent question. I guess, friends, this is a test to see are you the same kind of person, and what are your thoughts on work privacy. Well, we're going t
