Re: Only an idiot gives their details to FB

"When governments and companies start demanding to know why you have no social media presence,"

Happened to me in an interview with a bank, and this was over 10 years ago. They thought it very suspicious that they couldn't find any kind of online presence for me. I explained that since I worked on highly confidential networks and systems it was probably a bad idea to give out loads of details that could be used to pry that information out of me - and as an example I mentioned I would have the entire layout for their network and firewalls etc. at my disposal.

Once he understood, I left - no way I was going to work for someone that short-sighted and ignorant.
