FTC Approves Facebook Photos & Updates To Be Used On Background Checks

Facebook is about to become even more embedded into your life with a recent FTC approval that would allow a certain background check company to use your Facebook photos as part of an applicant verification process.

According to Forbes, The FTC determined that Social Intelligence Corp., in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, is allowed to analyze what you’ve said or posted to Facebook/Twitter/Flickr/blogs and the Internet, and in general may become a standard part of background checks when you apply for a job.
