This is true, however in states with "right to hire right to fire" it will cost them their job.

Exactly! It seems like people consistently don't make that connection in conversations about this. Most take the "Everyone has the right to say no" thing and just run with it.

If my boss asked me for my info and I didn't hand it over. I know for sure that he would fire me on the spot because he loves using the right to fire for no reason. To help show how much he loves using it; we have security guards where I work. Well one of them showed up off duty and gave one of the waitresses a hug and my boss went up to him and told him that he was fired. You might ask, why was he fired? The reason why was he gave a server a hug. Just a plain ole friendly hug! Keep in mind he was off the lock and at the store on his own time.

While this may seem like a PR move, and it certainly is, there is some weight behind the statement.

Many companies that are doing this are not going to be able to stand up to the lawyers that Facebook has access to. When a company with more money than you holds the threat of litigation over you, then it is within the companies best interest to stick away from such policies.

I think that a site like Facebook should be commended for sticking up for its users, and if there comes a day when they actual go through with this threat, there will be something to be said there as well.

Granted, I know that Facebook is not all roses and ponies, with rainbows and unicorns, but for those that are already in bed with the devil, some privacy cannot hurt.

Absolutely not. Two words- wrongful termination. As a subset to that, not hiring somebody because they refuse to hand over or display their private meddlings is discrimination and would stand up in court just as a wrongful termination suit would.
