I think Kelly raises some very important issues. Not only the issue of knowing protected class information, but the propensity toward intrusions into people's lives.

I believe that the judgment exhibited by an individual deleting their Facebook page in anticipation of applying for a position trumps someone who retains their page if there may be unflattering impressions possible from the information on it. I would not just assume anything negative from someone who doesn't have a page. In fact, from my experience of Facebook, they would get points for not having a page...

The correlation with extraversion? I didn't read the study, but other extraverts may just be out interacting with real people in the real world. Who's the real extrovert then? Interesting issue.

Facebook Trust Question? It would appear that a number of individuals who are looking for jobs or applying to graduate school are deleting their facebook profile. For example, I have a facebook jobs page, but a number of students recently have said - "I cannot join because I do not have a Facebook page." I am going to assume they did but have deleted it as they apply for jobs. So my question - do you trust a person less or have questions about them if they do not have a facebook page or it looks like they have cleaned up their internet history?
