"Social networking 'could affect future employment' 23/11/2007 - 07:31:51

Internet blogs risk leaving a permanent electronic footprint which could be seen by future employers, the privacy watchdog warned today.

Or maybe it's just another case of de Paper just copying and pasting UK press releases without thought...?

It is a valid worry though - the fact that the Bebo generation don't expect privacy or have concepts of privacy.
